Download CV

Since the late 1960s, Hamish Fulton has grounded his art in walks that he undertakes as a «walking artist». The act of walking, the experience of movement and the relationship to nature are at the centre of his artistic practice. Distinct from the positions of Land Art, which intervene physically in a landscape or create work from found materials, Fulton leaves as few traces as possible. He does not seek to change the landscapes he encounters on his walks, but emphasises experience as the starting point for his work.
