Hamish Fulton

Hamish Fulton

This limited edition print accompanied the 2012 Hamish Fulton exhibition at Ikon.

Fulton describes himself as a ‘walking artist’, with his work joining the two separate disciplines of walking and art. In 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’.

Fulton’s Ikon exhibition consisted entirely of wall pieces, each with a strong sense of place. They have ritualistic connotations, corresponding to walking activity and the meditative thought it can inspire, and touching on a wide range of non-art issues that preoccupy the artist
