    DescriptionThe daunting dimensions of Glasgow’s enormous Tramway 2 have overwhelmed many an excellent artist but sculptor Mick Peter came up trumps this year with a witty take on the art of labour and the labour of art-making. His large-scale installation of giant display “pyramids” was laid out like a luxury boutique, rendered in concrete and populated by a host of giant zips. Peter satirised consumer culture as well as design and art world hierarchies but also seemed to play with far wider ideas of thinking and making.
