UP Projects will be spending the summer by the sea, producing a new commission by artist Pablo Bronstein as part of Folkestone Triennial 2014.
Pablo Bronstein is one of the most exciting artists of his generation, combining interests in art and architecture with performance, installation and sculpture. For Folkestone Triennial 2014, Bronstein will present Beach Hut in the Style of Nicholas Hawksmoor, which he has described as a 'monument to architecture', paying homage to the quintessentially English architectural vocabulary of the 18th Century Baroque architect, Nicholas Hawksmoor. Situated amongst the other brightly coloured beach huts on the water front in Folkestone, this monumental sculpture’s dramatic presence will invoke a sense of folly.
Folkestone Triennial launches on 30th August and runs until 2nd November 2014.
Pablo Bronstein’s sculpture is an UP Projects production for the Triennial realised with a grant from the Creative Foundation.
