Sarah Staton is exhibiting at the Folkestone Triennial until 2 November 2014. For Folkestone, Staton has developed Steve, conceived as a ‘people friendly sculpture’ or a personified sculptural pavilion, and placed on The Stade. The Stade was originally a working area alongside ships berthing in the harbour, but now for the most part it has been given over to leisure and tourism. This location provides a great home for Steve, conceived as a monument to a person of the future. Click here to read more.
Sarah Staton’s edition for The Multiple Store is Post Pop Hamburger, a multiple first cast in bronze and subsequently chrome-plated where Staton reflects on the hamburger as the quintessential consumer symbol emanating from post-war American culture. This is America in its heyday when everyone believed in the Dream. Click here to read more about this edition.
