Floating Head in 1988 on its maiden voyage.

Floating Head is 26-tonne floating artwork was originally commissioned for Glasgow Garden Festival in 1988. It was conceived by Richard Groom who made it alongside shipbuilders at the Govan Docks on the banks of the Clyde, the waterway that’s central to the Glasgow’s industrial past. The sculpture bonds Glasgow’s industrial history and materials with the process of art-making.

Over five months from 26th April 1988, Glasgow Garden Festival attracted 4.3 million visitors and was part of the industrial transition that left its mark on Glasgow. As Kate Robertson, the co-director of the SPG, explains: “The Garden Festival marked a turning point for the city from post-industrial to a cultural destination.”
