Slow Signs, B&B Project Space for Folkestone Fringe, 2014

Picture 2 of 2


Slow Signs exhibition in B&B Project Space was part of Folkestone Fringe 2014. This work was shown with the help of a Talent Development Bursary awarded to artist collective Stair/Slide/Space to run a project in Folkestone during the Folkestone Triennial.

Jo Willoughby’s photo-documentation of found situations capture beautiful coincidences whilst reflecting forgotten public spaces. Often focusing upon forgotten and overlooked objects, these images seem to capture potential signs or symbols, glimpses of colour and shape that jar with their surroundings.

In this installation two slide-projectors will throw images next to one another at random, allowing chance to match sporadic corners of Britain. The already extensive visual lexicon will be developed through ‘residency days’ where Jo Willoughby will visit Folkestone to look for new editions to the slow-signs collection.

Alongside the exhibition Letty Clarke and Abigail Gilchrist from stair/slide/space will conduct a participatory strand to the project, inviting the public to take part in an ever growing 3D relief.
