- The Wandering Walk
“a walking route that opens the participants' eyes to seeing and experiencing nature in a new way”
- Fyn Amts Avis Newspaper
The Wandering Walk is a site-specific installation located on the South Fyn Danish Island of Ærø. It engages with the familiar practice of walking as a mode of perception to explore and enrich the complex and shifting relationships between humans and nature.
(Printed pamphlet & audioguide)
This walk does not take place in nature, but in the image of nature...
The installation is focused around the celebrated northern region of Vitsø. Frequently walked by locals and travellers for its idyllic beauty and natural offerings, it is the site of extraordinary landscape manipulation and re-appropriation.
The audio guide comprises two hours of curated sound, divided into 17 tracks (additional introductory tracks can be listened to in advance). With located signage to cue the audio tracks, the walker will be guided through both mapped and unmapped routes engaging with Vitsø beyond its immediate beauty, to bring into question subjects once thought of as known.
