High Wire

Catherine Yass

The multi-screen film and video installation High Wire was filmed in North Glasgow in 2008 at the Red Road housing estate. When it was built in 1963 Red Road was the tallest social housing in Europe. The film documents French high-wire artist Didier Pasquette, walking on a very thin wire, as he makes an attempt to traverse the space between two tower blocks.
