Margate Festival: Inside Out
16 Sep 2016 - 25 Sep 2016
Part of the Margate Festival
Inside Out uses webbing, existing structures and street furniture to create striking views to four corners: the sea, Margate, Fort Crescent and the Promenade. Weaving the fabric between the structures reveals delightful moments and secret spaces. The installation is a chance to (Sight) seek, discover, play and rest. Over the final weekend, the artists hand it over to the public to complete the weave and create their own new spaces.
In addition to the installation, there is a programme of events including a pop-up bar, music, dance and spoken word performances.
All Wrapped Up Workshop – 25th September- Join artist Jo Elbourne and take part in a large-scale freeform wrapping event at Fort Hill Shelter. You can weave in a declaration of love, make a statement, write a poem, create a new space or form a hidden retreat away from it all. An inclusive, community-focused, interactive event for all ages.
About the Artists- RL-a is run by Tim Ratliff and Tam Landells. RL-a is a small but lively architectural practice working on arts, commercial and domestic buildings. Their work is deeply personal and they invest everything into even the smallest of projects. They celebrate variety – variety gives us all the pleasures in life – and they love craft, workmanship and the pleasure of doing something well.
Reworks Studio is Chloe Young’s architectural practice based at Resort in Cliftonville. The studio is experienced at working closely with both domestic clients and creative businesses to develop and build smart, individual, beautifully crafted interventions, homes, work and play spaces.
With a background in commercial menswear and textile design, Jo Elbourne turned her attention to creating more hands-on woven works in 2014. Initially concentrating on re-working second-hand furniture in a collection called Wood & String, she is now focussing on new seating designs as well as bespoke furniture and art-based commissions. Jo is based at Resort Studios in Cliftonville.
