NOT only did one art student lose much of his work in the Glasgow School of Art fire, he has now lost most of his possessions.

Alexander Haukrogh Jensen, 23, studied painting and printmaking at the GSA and was preparing his degree show when much of it was either lost in the fire or drenched with firefighter's water.

And then this week, he returned from travelling in Scotland to find the roof of his flat collapsed in Baliol Street, Glasgow, and he fears he has lost most of his possessions.

Because the building, in the Woodlands area of the city, is still dangerous, he has not been able to return and is currently staying with friends in the city.

The two calamities have made life "very, very difficult" for the Danish artist.

He currently just has the clothes he is wearing and cannot return to his flat to retrieve his passport, which he needs to get to Denmark.

He is among the more than 100 graduating students whose work will be represented by one still image in a special exhibition at the McLellan Galleries.

"Not much of my work was lost but all of it was drowned in water," he said. "I had some work made out of bread and that has not survived. This is hardly a degree show but I think they have come to a great solution."
