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

The boats installation and video and the collective composition about memories, cultures, images and frames 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 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.

these are our boats!

Here is the video made with the footage recorded by the Year 8 Group 8z Ar4 students once they ‘floated’ their boats and performed the English Channel sea traffic.

boats floating

During this session students finished working on their boats and have been building nautical infrastructure. The elements such as the cardboard harbour wall and a lighthouse were placed on the sea of joined tables. Then the students prepared their boats for ‘floating’ and moving across the ‘waters’ through attaching fishing wire to the ships and placing themselves around the tables. They created heavy sea traffic through pulling their boats in different directions across the tables. The video made by the students documenting their fleet movements will be available to watch soon.
