Fay Stevens: “During an artist residency held in Hungary 2015, I walked repeatedly around the circumference of a lake, taking with me kinetic drawing machines to inscribe the corporeality of my journeys. On the final day, I invited my fellow artists to join me for a collective walking performance, passing to them kinetic drawing machines I had made so that they too could inscribe their own bodily cartography as we walked together in pilgrimage around the shoreline. It was on this final journey that I also physically drew a continuous line around the lake where water met land, inscribing the ground with a large piece of graphite.”

In this café Fay will talk briefly about the walk and of her thinking and practice around it. She will then open up the discussion on walking within the themes of kinetic drawing, embodied cartography, fractals, and on walking in circles.

The residency was funded by a synergy between the twinned cities of Bath (UK) and Kaposvár (Hungary) and a collaboration between Kaposvár Arts, Bath and Kaposvár Twinning Association and Bath Artsits’ Studios.
For Fay, the residency marked the beginning of a wonderful friendship and ongoing collaboration with dear friends and colleagues in Hungary.

Remote walking – walking with prompts

2021-07-06 18:00

Online

The pandemic challenged walking artists to engage with new forms and new media for their practice. Group walking was translated into online walking, allowing people around the globe to walk together. Prompts or "walking scores" facilitated pandemic walkers to explore within the limits of their walking spaces, often in surprising and new ways, individually or with other remote walkers. Online technologies permitted to listen into remote spaces, beyond physical reach in the pandemic.

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
