High Wire

Front Cover
"Drawing on filmed footage of high-wire walker Didier Pasquette, Catherine Yass's new work High Wire combines the age-old dream of walking in the air with the modernist ideal of building streets into the sky." "An extended sequence of stills of Pasquette's attempted walk in Glasgow is accompanied by essays by Steven Connor and Francis McKee which discuss High Wire within the history of tight-rope and high-wire walking and within the context of the post-war redevelopment of Glasgow." "High Wire was commissioned by Artangel and Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Visual Art 2008."--BOOK JACKET.
