In this site-specific floor painting, Andrew Barber reclaims the floor as a legitimate site for contemporary art. Folly (stone carpet) taps into an historic vein of decorative approaches to flooring and pavements, pushing against the contemporary desire for functionality and durability that has rendered the floor an often dull element of the modern built environment.
