Hamish Fulton - A Decision To Choose Only Walking [Readings from the Artist]
A closing reception with the artist during the final week of the exhibition. Hamish Fulton will be reading from his new publication, 'Words From Walks', followed by a Q&A with the audience.
The exhibition takes as its starting point the important walk the artist made over 47 days in 1973 from Duncansby Head to Land’s End – here presented as a large-scale wall text.
After this major walk Fulton made the radical decision to ‘only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks’. Since then Fulton has rigorously maintained this focus, using walking as his medium and stating ‘If I don’t walk, I can’t make art’.
Although only Fulton experiences his solitary walks directly, the works he presents in exhibitions and books allow us to engage with them.
