Say What I Am Called


Say What I am Called takes inspiration from the riddling culture of the Middle Ages to re-engage our delight in paradox, inversion and the unexpected.

At a time when boundaries are either being created or reinforced it seems more relevant than ever to parody and subvert systems of control. Come and navigate an interactive sculpture garden dominated by large obstacles and carefully crafted moments of intimacy: Oil paintings encased within aluminium structures; screen-printed banners adorning the walls, ceramic mementos amidst the debris and digital avatars will guide you on your journey.

Say What I am Called is part of the ongoing programme of temporary exhibitions and events that WAVEparticle facilitates as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces. This Show is also Supported by Glasgow City Council through the Visual Artist & Craft Makers Award and The Eaton Fund

SWIAC Scavenger Hunt


Say What I am Called invites you to an evening of treasure hunting, code-breaking and reality-altering play in the Laurieston area.
After finding a long-forgotten manuscript in the Caledonia Road church, 4 teams are tasked with finding hidden artifacts that unlock an eerie local mystery. Guided by some peculiar characters and a collection of medieval riddles, participants will work together to decipher the clues and collect the booty that has been lying in wait. Can you find all the artifacts before the developers, or will the secrets of the book remain hidden forever?

This event is free and child-friendly, we would encourage anyone looking for a new way to interact with the city to come along; no booking required.
