Hamish Fulton's first one-person show in the UK since 2002 includes new work made as the result of the group walks in Kent that were commissioned by Turner Contemporary in the lead up to the opening of our new gallery.

Based in Canterbury, Kent, Hamish Fulton has made walking the basis of his practice for the past three decades, producing photography, text and sketches that evolve from the experience of solo and group walks in the landscape.

He has stated "If I do not walk, I cannot make a work of art" and has summed up this way of thinking in the simple statement of intent: "no walk, no work".

In collaboration with Ikon, Birmingham.

One of my all time favourite artists for his examination of our relationship to the land through the soles of our boots, the seasons, and our experiences. I cannot wait to see this.
