At 240-feet long, the Easterhouse Mosaic was one of the largest handmade murals in Europe, well-loved locally and one of the most significant works of post-war public art commissioning. Unveiled in 1983 and widely celebrated, it nonetheless fell into disrepair and was de-commissioned in 2004. Supported by Glasgow International, Platform commissioned collaborative duo Walker and Bromwich to uncover the radical working-class history of this lost community artwork.
Recalled to Life is a short film by Walker and Bromwich that brings physical fragments of the mosaic back to life through a poetic incantation that weaves together images, music and personal testimonies.
Recalled to Life will be available to view online from 11 - 27 June here
