Lull - French & Mottershead

Lull invites you to take a winter walk through the town of King’s Lynn, as you listen via headphones to a story of how plants, animals and fungi bide their time, waiting for Spring.

Starting from outside Lynn Museum, the town becomes a habitat for life you can and cannot see. As you wander, you’ll find yourself thinking of absences and arrivals, abilities and adaptations, and of your own seasonal and bodily rhythms. Until you realise you’ve arrived somewhere new.

Lull is experienced through a spoken narrative streamed to your own smartphone. It has been written using insights gathered from local entomologists, botanists, and ecologists, combined with site research on overwintering strategies and habitats.

Each pack contains instructions to access the Lull audio, accompanied by materials that help illustrate or elaborate on data or anecdotes locating the walk in King’s Lynn. These include a map of habitats, a fold-out of animal tracks and average life expectancies, day length and temperature charts for Astronomical and Meteorological Winter, an image of a Peacock Butterfly, and a Brown Long-Eared Bat for the palm of your hand.

Blue box with 'Lull' in silver text on the front, held by gloved hands.

Please note: You will need your own smartphone and headphones to listen to the audio. The audio can be streamed or downloaded from Spotify, iTunes or Google Podcasts, links to the audio are included in the pack.

French & Mottershead are the UK artist duo Rebecca French and Andrew Mottershead. Spanning performance, video, photography, sound and digital installation, their work makes use of detailed social and forensic research to expand the viewer’s relationship to site. Often working with experts as part of their process, they undertake rigorous investigations into the ways environments, architectures and public spaces connect with who we are, and define a particular context to examine the codes and conventions that underpin the flows of feeling within.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
