A Line in Norfolk

RICHARD LONG AT HOUGHTON

There is a strong bond between internationally-celebrated Turner Prize-winning British Landscape artist, Richard Long, and this eighteenth century Palladian house in North Norfolk.

The relationship started in 2003, when Long was commissioned by Lord Cholmondley to create a piece of land art in the grounds of Houghton. This led to Full Moon Circle, a permanent sculpture created from local slate. Fourteen years later Long returned to Houghton for Earth Sky, his largest show in five years, creating new site-specific work from local materials.
