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 fourth and final walk in the 2018 Ash Walk series will be hosted by artists Marcus Coates and Fiona Macdonald. The walk will take place in Folkestone and it will extend upon the artists’ ‘Ask The Wild’ project held at Whitechapel Gallery (London) in February 2018. As part of this project the artists asked: If birds could offer advice on human problems, what would they say? ‘Ask the Wild’ looks at entrenched issues and thorny problems found in nature, to assist us in opening up unexpected pathways of creative thinking in everyday life.
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 two hours long and will take place through uneven countryside terrain. For any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the fourth 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: Axis Mundi, Marcus Coates, courtesy: the artist.
