Hamish Fulton

Born in 1946 in London, Hamish Fulton lives and works near Canterbury, UK. In 1973, after walking over 1,000 miles in 47 days from Duncansby Head, Scotland to Land’s End, England, Fulton made the decision to “only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks.” Purposefully made of humble materials like paper, wooden rulers, and photographs, his recreations align with the belief that these walks should directly engage with the environment yet leave no traces upon it. Calls for political justice also recur in Fulton’s work, corresponding to his commitment to individual and artistic freedom.
