Folkestone trip with Middlesex

My first trip with Middlesex University was to Folkstone Triennial.

It was lovely weather; it was a nice beach, nice town, and especially their special fresh fish and chips with a refreshing pint of Fosters beer. For the  reason we went to Folkstone , so we could see a  variety of the artworks exhibitions around the town. Artists such as:

We arrived  by coach bus and met the artists. Jonathan Wright (one of the artists) gave us the introduction of the exhibition and a tour around the town of Folkstone.

The banner of the title of ‘FOLKSTONE IS AN ART SCHOOL’ holds up  across the street holding up on each side of the building.

Richard Woods, Holiday Home, commissioned by the Creative Foundation for Folkestone Triennial 2017.

This ‘holiday home art’ is the series that plants the homes around the town; made in different colors and different sizes. They were light pink, bold pink, yellow, blue and so on. I had to spot the ‘holiday homes’ around the town.

Amalia Pica, Souvenir, commissioned by the Creative Foundation for Folkestone Triennial 2017.

The seashell sculpture above was made as a series of bronze that have been placed in shops, homes, and around the seaside town. This is the one of the pieces I’ve found as you can see the image from above.

There were a lot more, so I’ve chosen the two images that showed my interest the most because there were the ones that caught my eye the most.

Here is the link below for the official website to show a lot more artworks in the exhibition and the artists at Folkstone Triennial
