Steep Street Coffee House, The Old High Street
Runs until 5 Nov
Mon-Fri: 8.30am - 6pm, Sat: 9am - 6pm, Sun: 9am - 5pm
As part of Folkestone Triennial Fringe, artist Colin Booth will build Symmetrophobia, a large scale installation, at Steep Street Coffee House in Folkestone’s Creative Quarter.
This new work will displace 1820 of the 10,000 books that crowd the shelves of Steep Street Coffee House. Opened in 2015, Steep Street doubles as a book shop and café. It is a hub for Folkestone’s flourishing creative community and regularly hosts literary and art events.
Colin Booth writes “neatly stacked on their shelves, the blocks in Symmetrophobia present an altogether different sense of order and value from that of the surrounding books."
