In 2018, The Ash Project is working in partnership with Whitstable Biennale to present a series of artists’ walks. Curator Rose Thompson has devised four walks in collaboration with artists, encouraging different ways of looking at and exploring the landscape in Kent.
The third in this series of four walks will be hosted Adam Chodzko who will lead a walk into the near future as part of a funeral procession for some of the UK’s last remaining ash trees. Chodzko’s practice uses a wide range of media including video, installation and performance. His work is characterised by a keen curiosity, exploring the interactions and possibilities of human behaviour – the gap between how we are and how we could be. With a few surprises in store for walkers, along the way, this walk promises to be stimulating, interactive and surprising.
The walk is free and open to all to attend, but as spaces are limited, we recommend booking in advance. Please note, this walk will be approximately three hours long and will take place through uneven countryside terrain. For any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the third of a series of artists’ walks taking place in 2018. With thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England, Kent County Council, and the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Image: Adam Chodzko, Haywain Re-enactment Confusion, 2014. Photo: Seth Barnard.
