The making of Phyllida Barlow 'folly'

Discover how Phyllida Barlow created her ambitious installation for the British Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale. The exhibition, entitled 'folly', playfully challenges us to explore our own understanding of sculpture. Commissioned by the British Council, Barlow has transformed everyday materials, such as timber, concrete and fabric, into bold sculptures that infiltrate the entire building, reaching up to the roof and even spilling outside.
