'Found art' in Oulton


'Found art' is when one takes an object and thoughtfully places it in a new context - and this act gives the new arrangment of the object the right to be called 'art'. I think.

So I enjoyed the way the owner of this house stuck a piece of old memorial sculpture (from an old church doorway, perhaps?) on to the wall outside their home. I kinda like odd, idiosyncratic, for-no-reason-at-all displays like this! Makes life entertaining...

The clue, I would guess, as to how the owner got the piece is in the name of the house - 'The Old Vicarage'.
