Walk the Line’ features works by contemporary and emerging artists Ellen Brady, Rachael Clewlow, Matthew Chesney and Hamish Fulton, and is timed to coincide with the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest. This historic document, housed at Lincoln Castle, was critical in allowing the right of common access to the royal forests and private lands. The theme of the work focuses on ‘forest’ and ‘walking the land’.

Andrea Martin, Exhibitions and Interpretation Manager, said: “The show asks us to consider how you share the personal experience of walking and travelling through the landscape.

“The three artists have taken the act of walking and transformed the experience into art works ranging from text, video installation and painting.

“It invites audiences to consider the relationship between the performative act of walking and its artistic documentation.”

‘Walk the Line’ can be seen at the Usher Gallery from 4 November until 14 January. Entry is free.
