A new work commissioned by the Folkestone Triennial, is a video installation and sign, exploring the capacity to disseminate through a community a rumour of a curse, a ritual cleansing and the existence of four monumental pyramids.

One of the most ambitious public art projects to be presented in the UK, the Triennial is a three-yearly exhibition of works which will be specially created for public spaces throughout Folkestone.

The selected artists are David Batchelor, Christian Boltanski, Adam Chodzko, Nathan Coley, Tacita Dean, Jeremy Deller, Mark Dion, Tracey Emin, Ayse Erkmen, Sejla Kameric, Robert Kusmirowski, Langlands & Bell, Kaffe Matthews, Ivan & Heather Morison, Nils Norman with Gavin Wade mit Simon & Tom Bloor, Susan Philipsz, Public Works, Patrick Tuttofuoco, Mark Wallinger, Richard Wentworth, Pae White and Richard Wilson.

The inaugural Folkestone Triennial will include both temporary works, which will remain in situ for the three months of the exhibition, and a number of permanent works. This pattern will be repeated in subsequent Triennials so that, over time, Folkestone will become a true creative centre for contemporary art of the highest calibre. The Triennial is conceived and led by curator Andrea Schlieker, co-curator of the British Art Show 6, and aims to examine changing notions of art in the public realm.

An illustrated 128pp catalogue with an essay by the curator Andrea Schlieker and short texts by all of the artists will accompany the exhibition.
