Project Description

Folkestone Triennial 2017

Community Project

After our involvement in the 2014 Folkestone Triennial, the team at Martello Building Consultancy were really excited at the opportunity to take on the role of Technical Consultants for the 2017 Folkestone Triennial – ‘Double Edge’.

Working alongside the Triennial team, Martello advised on the installation of a wide range of different urban artworks throughout the town of Folkestone.

The project was particularly challenging due to the unique nature of each of the pieces of art.

The Martello team worked on a number of projects within the 2017 Triennial portfolio – of particular note were: ‘Wall’ by Alex Hartley – This installation from a technical perspective brought a number of challenges to the construction process – the piece is pretty large and is effectively balanced over a cliff edge.

Another striking piece was ‘1947’ by Internationally renowned artist Sinta Tantra – a dynamic painting design of circles with flowing and broken lines of colour which transformed The Cube in Tontine Street.
