“no walk, no work”.
- Hamish Fulton.
Born in 1946, Hamish Fulton studied at St Martin's College of Art before coming into prominence in the late 1960s, alongside his peers Richard Long and Gilbert & George who he also studied with.
In October 1973, having walked 1,022 miles in 47 days from Duncansby Head (near John O’Groats) to Lands End in Cornwall, Fulton decided to ‘only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks’. He has since made walking, both as an individual and as part of a group, the primary focus of his work.
This talk has been organised to coincide with a communal group walk taking place in Plymouth on Sat 6th Dec, led by Hamish Fulton and the ‘Walk On’ exhibition which features his work.
