In 2015 I walked from North of Scotland to the Venice Biennale. It was framed as a 'pilgrimage' that explored participatory art works in relation to the 'art world' and was commissioned by Deveron Arts. I walked 2638 km in 88 days. Along the way, the project became about many others things: land use, access, the pace of life, physical challenge, my own ageing/mortality, a poetic gesture, the kindness of strangers, to name a few concepts. I carried an oak sapling the whole way, and it now grows, strong, in the heart of the Aresenale, in Venice. The documentary film of this project was funded by Creative Scotland and a trailer can be seen here. The full film is available on request.
