This exhibition considers artistic practices that address walking as a strategy to rethink our relationship to the natural environment and devise exquisite tactics for uncovering new vistas of the overbuilt city.

Artists: Anca Benera and Arnold Estefan, Fokus Grupa, Oto Hudec, Michal Kindernay, Cecylia Malik and Davor Sanvincenti

Curators: Maja and Reuben Fowkes

To walk in the landscape today is to do so with awareness of the anthropogenic transformation of the natural world, while walking in the urban environment synchronises the rhythm of our steps with the great acceleration of the high-tech city. This exhibition investigates how in today’s twenty-four seven culture, where minimising time and maximising speed is a prerequisite, the choice to move through the world at a pace of five kilometres an hour could create the conditions to reconnect with ecological realities. Walking without Footprints considers artistic practices that address walking as a strategy to rethink our relationship to the natural environment and devise exquisite tactics for uncovering new vistas of the overbuilt city. It is an invitation to experience walking both as an engaging and political, as well as a contemplative and liberating activity that holds out the promise of bringing us an inch closer to a more ecological existence.
