Lost Tours 2

Full Company

Welcombe Barton (July 2003)

Wrights & Sites made Lost Tours 2 for the Shed Summit, a hybrid mix of conference and mini-festival around the subject of sheds and similar dwellings, held at Welcombe Barton in North Devon.

For the first day, we made a durational event involving shed construction, destruction and reconstruction; a scarecrow that spoke fragments of Kurt Schwitters text; photo and object montage; writing with potted plants; a series of short repetitive performances related to autobiographical experiences in and of sheds...

On the second day, we led a three-hour pilgrimage-cum-mis-guided tour, carrying a small shed down to the sea and back, and visiting the other sheds of Welcombe along the way.

Funded by Arts Council England.
