Bill Woodrow - The Ledge
Commissioned by Creative Folkestone
This crystalline modernist architectural composition, echoing the white cliffs beyond, supports figures of an Inuit and a seal, and sits on a black puddle shape. Sited by the shore, the strong horizontals suggest the rising water level resulting from the disappearing polar ice caps, an iceberg melting into a pool of oil.

The towering pile of balloons compels us to recognise our own
