As part of Whitstable Biennale’s partnership with The Ash Project, SMFA Fine Art Lecturer and acclaimed artist Adam Chodzko is hosting the Ash Walk on Saturday 25th August from 2-4pm. He will lead a walk into the near future as part of a funeral procession for some of the UK’s last remaining ash trees.
https://www.theashproject.org.uk/ is a cultural response to ash dieback in the Kent Downs, celebrating the cultural, natural and social history of the ash tree, to present a series of artists’ walks in 2018 through ash landscapes in Kent, encouraging study and providing an intimate, conversational way to explore the landscapes.
An award winning artist, Adam Chodzko uses a wide range of media including video, installation and performance. His work is characterised by a keen curiosity, exploring the interactions and possibilities of human behaviour – the gap between how we are and how we could be. With a few surprises in store for walkers, along the way, this walk promises to be stimulating, interactive and surprising. The walk is FREE but needs to be booked in advance.
