Für FOLLY FOR A FLYOVER erschloss das multidisziplinäre Künstler*innenkollektiv Assemble eine ungenutzte Fläche unter einer Autobahn als neuen öffentlichen Raum für Kunst. Mit der Hilfe von Freiwilligen entstand die Kulisse eines Hauses, das zwischen zwei Fahrspuren eingeklemmt zu sein schien.

“Starting with the idea that how spaces are imagined is often as important as their physical characteristics in determining their use, the Folly reclaimed the future of the site by re-imagining its past. The new ‘fairy tale’ for the site described the Folly as the home of a stubborn landlord who refused to move to make way for the motorway, which was subsequently built around him, leaving him with his pitched roof stuck between the East and Westbound lanes.” (Assemble)
