Located in empty buildings along Folkstone’s historic Tontine Street, Club Shepway brings together a collection of artists films.
Each screened in a separate space the works become segments of an expanded narrative, uniting the empty shop units with flickers of celluloid. Seducing the viewer with a journey down a street, an empty shop window, and the intimacy of an open door letting you walk in.
Film works range form the documentary view of Amy Fenecks eco structures, to the dislodged everyday of Alex Le Feuvre’s “Grace”
The visual encounters combine to dislodge the ordinary and reveal the unseen, opening a walk down the street into an expansive visual journey

The Four Winds Cafe
10th March – 2nd April
At the B & B Project Space
14 Tontine Street Folkestone
With impending demolition the Four Winds Cafe is re-appropriated and celebrated in the work of local artists.
Symbolic of the archetypal sea side cafe, the british weather, the formica and the continual flow of local customers, the current exhibition seeks to document the four winds aesthetic and historical significance within the local arena.
The Four winds has been central to many throughout their experience and memory of the seafront gaining iconic status, and igniting a nostalgia for the great myth of the British summer.
