FG ≫ 2008 ≫ This weekend's Folkestone Fringe events

friday night at the folkestone fringe, invites you to two previews:

at the cube gallery, tontine street: new work by andy tuohy1 preview starts at 6 - 8.30 pm

all welcome to see a continuation of some of the poster modern work seen earlier in the year at georges house gallery, alongside new work some of which references the triennial.

at georges house gallery, 8 the old high street: kieron rhys johnson2 and layla boyd3 exhibitions sex, death and rock & roll preview from 7.30 - 9 pm

come along and see these young and extremely talented contemporary illustrators make their debut in their home town. layla is currently studying at falmouth and kieron at brighton. at the leas lift, curated by club shepway:

on saturday 16th and sunday 17th in direct response to the theme of the folkestone triennial - travels through time and space, collaborative artists kieren reed and abigail hunt are turning the leas lift into a 40 second time machine.

the idea of an alternative reality makes reference to a whole genre of films and literature since the nineteenth century, such as back to the future, slaughter house 5, H.G. Wells "the time machine" and Xavier de Maistres "a journey around my room".

working with the social excitement of the theme park ride and the Dr Who generation, the artwork playfully teases the audience into suggesting that it is their very being on the lift which is taking them into the future, and not simply the fact that we are just seeing the passing of 40 seconds of time. at the DIY fringe:

victoria tami duzek-woodward4 has been back in town leaving behind her teddy bears; tangible references to her developing work on unspoken conversation between lost and found. for more information on the artists work please visit here

This is my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events + voting for best venues + things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving here. Now Iʼve moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesnʼt get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great arenʼt they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
