Selling The Surreal House as if it were a real house, let the self-styled “For Surreal” estate agents take you on an unusual tour of the exhibition, stopping off at twelve original concepts and panoramic views: igniting your curiosity with strange tales, time-share sales techniques and bizarre ritual including a visitation from the spirit guide of Leonora Carrington. The tour will culminate in a song of great joy performed at various points throughout the Centre, as you, the buyers, celebrate shared ownership of The Surreal House .
