After shooting the opening party and then the first day of the 2014 Triennial I finally got chance to go and see it for myself – and only just in time.
Amidst all the bustle of the last weekend, we took the opportunity to go and see the ‘Folkestone Banksy’ and as we were there an ominous drilling sound came from behind the piece. Oh yes, the greedy owner of the building decided to remove this generous gift to the people of Folkestone – 33 days after it first appeared and after one or two naughty additions had been made. You can just see the first drill-holes appearing at the top left of the piece. A couple of hours after I took these, possibly the last in-situ, pictures our art-loving Granny was gone.
