Burn Down the House

Nicholas Folland’s practice explores the relationship between domestic objects and materials, natural forces and historical references. His intricate and complex sculptural installations override the common or banal uses of objects to give them a heightened meaning, often relating to the source of their substance or the cultural practices and identities they hold. His work speaks to uncertainty, ecological fragility and our perception of time. 

Folland created a site-specific installation that responds directly to the history of our heritage listed building. Across three gallery spaces, Folland’s work encourages a closer engagement with our unique, domestically scaled spaces and architectural features.

"The tensions and connections between our homes and the natural world are possibly at the heart of what I’m always exploring in my work.”
