The Orient-Express, most glamorous of trains and epitome of stylish international travel, still pulls in weekly at Folkestone. Tuttofuoco and two of his collaborators re-enacted the classic journey from Istanbul to Paris and Folkestone. FOLKESTONE, his large sculpture on the harbour arm, is the result of this journey. The individual ‘letters’ were chanced upon by the artist through social situations and incidents with people along the route. Like a classic ‘road movie’, Folkestone Express, Tuttofuoco’s accompanying film, documents these encounters as the journey evolves.

FOLKESTONE sculpture suggested viewing points: The East Cliff or Sunny Sands.
