Richard Woods: Second Home




Richard Woods: Second Home is an insight into the working practices of internationally renowned artist, Richard Woods. Woods’ practice of architectural, design and material interventions with graphic line and vibrant colour provide striking interruptions within a designated environment. This exhibition explores this practice through preparatory maquettes and drawings for the finished installation Holiday Home at the Folkestone Triennial 2017.

Identical in size and design, Holiday Home comprised of six ‘cartoon bungalows’, set down in Folkestone where you may not have expected to find a house – in the harbour, on a traffic roundabout, sinking into the pebbles on the beach. 

Containing new sculptures, paintings and photography, this exhibition includes material charting the fabrication, installation and public reaction to Holiday Home exhibited at the 2017 Folkestone Triennial. The material exhibited in Second Home will provide a contemporary retrospective on the recent project, reinforcing some of the issues that Holiday Home activated while creating ongoing discussion around this project and interpretations of public art in general.
