Creative Foundation is delighted to announce details of the artists taking part in the fourth edition of Folkestone Triennial, one of the UK’s most ambitious art exhibitions. This year triennial features Lithuanian artists Nomeda and Gediminas Urbonas.
Nomeda and Gediminas Urbonas have designed a Folk Stone Power Plant (working title) to stand behind the Town Hall in the ancient Market Place. The stone is inspired by the writings and drawings of Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) the polymath founder of bio-geography, geomagnetic and meteorological monitoring, and progenitor of ecology. The stone will contain innovative sustainable organic (mushroom) batteries storing electricity, resulting from research supported by a global network of scientists.
