Highview students’ work in the Folkestone Triennial 2011 education and outreach exhibition


The islands installation and the tunnel video were included in the exhibition at The Old Post Office @ Tontine Street in Folkestone. Works made by students from several local schools are presented at the Folkestone Triennial’s education space, which is also used as ‘making space’ where free art and craft activities for young people and families are run daily throughout the three months of the Folkestone Triennial.

Group 3 completed their work by placing the drawings and photographs printed on acetate inside the ‘poly-tunnel’. Entering the inside of the installation was like visiting a fantastic land. The tunnel was fascinating also from outside so students shot videos documenting their work an telling a story of travelling through the temporary, see-through environment that they created.

The afternoon group used the pictures of plants that they took in the school’s polytunnel last week to create their own fantastic ‘combo/hybrid plants’. These images printed on acetate will be soon used as part of the outside installation…

the islands – next stage

This group continued to work on their islands project. They also started choosing materials for bridges that the students will make in order to connect all islands. Each island will be mounted on ‘legs’ and the whole archipelago will be moved to the space outside the art class room.

After digging deep into the ground and discovering the objects hidden there, the students overlooked the islands-planets from above and enriched them with colourful and differently shaped rocks, rivers and other geological forms.
