Hamish Fulton walking artist – works on show at Parafin Gallery in London’s Mayfair

Be the first to favourite this.

“A Decision to Choose only Walking” is the title of the show – show closes 22 February 2020

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.
