London South Bank Festival of Britain - landscape artifacts: Ben Kelly Enclosure

A trio of dry stone walling materials and techniques from around the UK, quite nicely made.  I am discomfited by the juxtaposition with the brutalist architecture, probably in a good way.  The artist and the curator of this exhibition have had  to put up with too many elements though: the attempt to remediate the brutalism with industrial paint and box balls, and yellow banners. Two compromises too far: chaos.
