Hamish Fulton. Walking Journey

Hamish Fulton emerged onto the late 1960s art scene as part of a generation of young British artists engaged with extending the possibilities of sculpture. Fulton describes himself as a “walking artist”, making literal walks in locations as varied as Japan, Italy and Iceland, with a sculptural, photographic and conceptual approach to his art. This work is published in conjunction with Tate Britain’s exhibition of new and recent work by Hamish Fulton, his first major showing in a UK public space in over ten years. It is illustrated with an 80-page section of new photographic and text work made by Fulton for the book. An essay by Andrew Wilson traces the artist’s career and influences and further chapters explore issues central to Fulton’s practice.
