The Creative Folkestone Triennial features public installations from 25 artists. Among them is Assemble, whose sculptures are not only visually stimulating but also physically interactive. The event celebrates its fifth year and has filled public spaces across Folkestone with 27 pieces of art, all ranging in style.
Assemble created a series of nine "skatable sculptures" strewn across the town's restored Harbour Arm promenade. The artist collaborated with local skaters to create interactive sculptures for its community. Made from locally sourced materials, the sculptures include raw Kentish ragstone found on the nearby beach and steel sourced from a nearby fabricator. Assemble's sculptures follow the skateboarding philosophy of "appropriating found or existing aspects of the public realm and adapting them through resourceful, low-tech, DIY means."
