In the exhibition »It’s what it’s about, not what it looks like« Häusler Contemporary Zürich presents photo-text-works, sculptures, works on paper as well as pencil wall drawings by the British artist Hamish Fulton (b. 1946 in London). The exhibition is inter alia dedicated to his most ambitious project: the summit of Mount Everest in May 2009.

Hamish Fulton’s work is destined to one central topic: nature and man’s experience with nature. For about the past 30 years he is undertaking extensive walking-tours on all five continents. The experiences that result from these walks the artist assimilates in his works based upon the notes he makes while walking. It is Hamish Fulton’s wish to convey the original and intuitive relationship of men to the earth in its diversity of appearance into a general form. The Walking Artist Hamish Fulton ranks among the most important conceptual contemporary artist. His works are exhibited in famous international museums such as the Tate Modern in London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris or the Texas Gallery, Houston.
