The artwork

Cooking Sections, the artists behind the artwork, will unveil a new audio-narrative called ‘Moveable Estates’.

Set at Winterton-on-sea, Moveable Estates takes the form of a 30-minute audio guided walk, starting on the pad of a recently relocated fisherman’s shed overlooking the beach at Winterton.

The narrator explores stories of previous shorelines that are still present in the landscape: from harbour remains to coastal structures that are all found today inland, as well as the ghostly presence of lighthouses and prosperous towns that lie beneath the water.

The project takes as a point of departure references of buildings that have been uprooted and moved from their original location due to economic incentives, local tradition, cultural shift or unstable ground, in Norfolk, and elsewhere. Moveable Estates invites listeners to think about the future role of cities in envisioning fluctuating horizons.
