Viewing Creative Folkestone Triennial: The Plot


Now’s your chance to see works by leading contemporary artists alfresco. Installed across the coastal town of Folkestone, The Plot presents 27 newly commissioned site-specific artworks by the likes of Bob and Roberta Smith, Rana Begum and Gilbert & George.

Curated by Lewis Biggs, the fifth edition of the Creative Folkestone Triennial explores the relation between stories and material realities, focusing on three historic Folkestone narratives: St Eanswythe’s watercourse; the physician William Harvey’s discovery of the circulation of blood; and Folkestone’s industrial road ‘The Milky Way’.

Make a beeline for Jason Wilsher-Mills’s monumental sculpture, I am Argonaut, before scoping out Shezad Dawood’s new virtual reality artwork that highlights the implications of climate change on all forms of life. Later, take a stroll along the beach to see the magnificent set of Rana Begum designed beach huts.

Look to the public programme of events for guided tours, panel discussions and more. If you’re up for a cultural weekend by the sea, it’s well worth the trip from London.
