French & Mottershead

Lull

Norfolk Wonder Walk Pack

Sunday 20 February, 12.00pm

Lynn Museum

Limited Availability

Tickets: £5.00

+ £3 postage

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.

 

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.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
