Last year I was invited by Ian Hunter & Celia Larner of Littoral Arts Trust to spend some time with them at the home of Kurt Schwitters‘ last Merzbau project. Merzbarn. Located in a remote woodland in the heart of the Langdale valley in Cumbria, we explored, talked, drank tea and herded sheep. Ian and Celia are amazing and devoted to ensuring Kurts legacy here is secured for future generations with the plans to build an international centre for collage studies and research. It’s a truely magical place, you can feel Kurt’s creative spirit everywhere. It feels like the rural home of British collage.
