Fools and Follies

“Fools and Follies” is an innovative installation that explores the role of ornament and sculptural form in the landscape. Although many visitors may expect such interventions to romanticise the landscape this installation encourages visitors to question the very existence of mans intervention in it.

Visitors will be confronted by the unexplainably familiar but the context within which they experience the works will raise doubts – What is a deformed black shed doing here? Is that tin hoarding part of a structure that has since been removed? Why has that isolated decorative column been sited in such an isolated location? What is that coloured “blob” doing in there? Why are those ornamental forms located in that space? Such questions will hopefully generate discussion and encourage visitors to question what they think they have seen and experienced.
