LOW&HIGH was an interdisciplinary arts platform set up in an old fish and chip shop in the Creative Quarter in Folkestone, running from mid May to mid August 2011 it explored the connections between the arts (theatre and visual art) and geography, sociology and politics. For three months the LOW&HIGH space was used as TRANSPORT’s rehearsal space, artists’ in residence studio, and a venue for presentations and discussions.Micro-residency projects involved emerging international artists exploring their work in the space culminating in a presentation and an exhibition. The themes of the residencies were development/destruction, identity/borders, the new world/nature and games/social engagement. 'The Visitors’ scheme was a programme of events that incorporated networking, experience sharing and discussions with London and Kent based art practitioners and art organizers, which was open to the public.
Guests looked at accessibility of art as well as the range of media and activities employed to distribute and share artworks, including on-line curatorial projects and the moving image art agency.
LOW&HIGH was curated by Zbigniew Kotkiewicz.
