Folkestone Triennial


  • 3-7 Tontine Street Folkestone, England, CT20 United Kingdom (map)

Folkestone Lightbulb stands over the junction of the two most important streets in Folkestone’s old town: the Old High Street and Tontine Street, at the gateway to the Creative Quarter. The image is composed of Craig-Martin’s stylish strong colours, and formally picks up on the curving façade and spiralling structure of the building on which it is placed, while conceptually the lightbulb suggests ideas, (sustainable) energy, that moment of inspiration, expressing the essence of the regeneration that is happening around it.
