Inspired by the great Swiss writer Robert Walser we have brought together a group of artists for this show whose work - as far as we are concerned - could be described as possessing a kind of slowness in its burn; artists who stoke the viewer’s perception: ideas and language are revealed over time and often with solitude. 

The show's title is derived from a description of Walser, who loved to take long lonely walks as a means of gestation. Of course it is no coincidence that one of Walser's greatest ever short stories (beloved by Susan Sontag, Hermann Hesse, W.G. Sebald and others) is Der Spaziergang (The Walk). 

A programme of events will run throughout the show including a special screening of Richard Artschwager shut up and LOOK (directed by Maryte Kavaliauskas 2012). The exhibition is also accompanied by a publication. Please email us if you would like more details hello@hannahbarry.com
