‘Proxigean Tide’ at May to September 2008.
This is the first public gallery in the UK to present a selected survey of Adam Chodzko's work from the past seventeen years - over half of which has never been seen in the UK - alongside a major new commission produced especially for the show.
Exhibiting over 50 works which, together with the architecture of Tate St Ives, create a journey between notions of borders, communities, the carnivalesque and ruins. More
"Pyramid", a new work commissioned by the Folkestone Triennial, is a video installation and sign, exploring the capacity to disseminate through a community a rumour of a curse, a ritual cleansing and the existence of four monumental pyramids.
Folkestone Triennial ‘Tales of Time and Space’
14 June - 14 September 2008
Curator: Andrea Schlieker
One of the most ambitious public art projects to be presented in the UK, the Triennial is a three-yearly exhibition of works which will be specially created for public spaces throughout Folkestone. More
The selected artists are David Batchelor, Christian Boltanski, Adam Chodzko, Nathan Coley, Tacita Dean, Jeremy Deller, Mark Dion, Tracey Emin, Ayse Erkmen, Sejla Kameric, Robert Kusmirowski, Langlands & Bell, Kaffe Matthews, Ivan & Heather Morison, Nils Norman with Gavin Wade mit Simon & Tom Bloor, Susan Philipsz, Public Works, Patrick Tuttofuoco, Mark Wallinger, Richard Wentworth, Pae White and Richard Wilson.
The inaugural Folkestone Triennial will include both temporary works, which will remain in situ for the three months of the exhibition, and a number of permanent works. This pattern will be repeated in subsequent Triennials so that, over time, Folkestone will become a true creative centre for contemporary art of the highest calibre. The Triennial is conceived and led by curator Andrea Schlieker, co-curator of the British Art Show 6, and aims to examine changing notions of art in the public realm.
An illustrated 128pp catalogue with an essay by the curator Andrea Schlieker and short texts by all of the artists will accompany the exhibition.
