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.
I'm a grower, gardener and qualified designer living and working in South London. I teach horticulture at Capel Manor College, at their site in Regent's Park, and I coordinate the volunteers of Garden Organic's South London Master Gardener programme.
