Group Walk with Hamish FultonIn 1973, having walked over 1000 miles in 47 days from Duncansby Head to Land’s End, Fulton decided to ‘only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks.’ Since then the act of walking has remained central to his artistic practice. He has said ‘If I do not walk, I cannot make a work of art’. Calls for political justice, for Tibet and previously on behalf of Australian Aborigines and North American Indians, also recur in Fulton’s work, corresponding to the individual and artistic freedom embodied within it. This walk complements Hamish Fulton’s current solo show at IKON gallery.
Organised in collaboration with Fierce Festival as part of part of Re-Tracing the City, a programme of walking based public artwork. Presented in association with IKON
