Anthony, Dennis, and Nicholas Santella | 2017 - Summer 2018
Folly, originally a part of the 2017 exhibition Shared Ground, is a sculpture that draws on the visual vocabularies of garden follies, improvised defensive fortifications, and environmental installations to create a space that invites and repulses. It provides a shelter in which to consider threads of craft and fear that run through our relationship with land, the search for safety, conflict, and the ever-present attraction of barriers. In acknowledgment of the fact that the closest approximation to safety is found in community, all are invited to contribute to Folly by bringing their own branches to add to the installation or by sharing their thoughts in the journal available in a box within the fortification.
Folly will remain on site through Spring/Summer 2018.
