Last Fridays: Folk-made

Last Fridays: Folk-made

March’s Last Fridays is inspired by FolkeFest. Folk-made explores how folklore and stories are created by each of us – a handmade, homemade folk. By selecting, collecting and cherishing the offcuts of the world around us, we give them meaning, and they add to the meaning and mythology that we gather in life. Folk-made includes audio collections, collages built to tell stories, people’s personal collections of mementos, and images that signify meaning and gather meaning as they are viewed.

Collections of people’s treasured items will display how we forge our own mythologies through the personal archive that we create during our lives – train tickets from first dates, cracker presents, pebbles from our favourite beaches and the items that we can’t help but collect, each given significance by the part of our life that touches it. Come along to explore the objects that line the road of people’s journeys through life.

Flung, Draped
ioshiloh presents a series of collages that study topics such as the deprivation of liberties within systems of care, the warnings of the woman who haunts Tontine Street, and the repeated trappings and exploitation of women in stories and histories.
ioshiloh is an artist residing in Folkestone. She takes inspiration from folklore, horror, the strangeness she comes across in the everyday, hard-hitting works of art and literature, and the red tape and isolation witnessed in her many roles working in the care and charity sectors. She creates works which are rich in symbolism that entice the viewer to look deeper. She is an avid collector of curiosities which extends to the found images within her work.

You Are Here

Arcane sketchbook
A group of images and symbols sourced from the tracking of arcane correspondences.
Exhibited here is an early work in progress, and an exploration in how images can generate meaning when presented as a collection.
Jim Lockey is an interdisciplinary artist and storyteller. Jim's work often explores how history, story and tradition affects how we construct our identity and understanding of the world.

There will be a zine library in the space, where you can sit and read.
