Hamish Fulton: Walking East

In the nineteen-sixties, Hamish Fulton (London, 1946) became known as one of a group of British artists exploring new ways of understanding sculpture in the context of the dematerialisation of the artistic object. In particular, Fulton's practice was characterised by his desire to forge an intense relationship with nature through the act of walking, which became the focus of his work.

His exhibition at the CGAC, which is articulated around these walks through different countries or geographical areas, brings together a selection of photographs, drawings and sculptures produced during (or based on) the walks, which constitute the real ‘material’ of his work. We propose four sections through his work, one focusing on projects carried out in different countries, another on projects carried out in Spain and a third in which most of his work will be shown, which has given rise to numerous editions. Finally, a fourth section will present the result of the specific project carried out in collaboration with the Museum of the University of Navarra, in which Hamish Fulton will walk the French Way of St. James in the opposite direction from Finisterre to Hendaye, passing through Pamplona and Roncesvalles.
