Navigable Lines is an investigation into post-industrial landscapes by artists Fuller, Hicklin and Hill. For the last 5 years the artists have been walking together as part of the wider collaborative project Common Ground. Shared journeys on foot have linked landscapes in the North West, UK and New South Wales, Australia informing individual arts practice offering reimagined perspectives of forgotten post industrial landscapes.
The works presented have been created during walking journeys along the River Mersey as well as new works created specifically in response to walking along inland waterways locations between the Midlands and Liverpool.
All three artists bring a unique perspective and approach using drawing and print within their personal practice. Shared conversations during walking informs and underpins ideas of how walking has a direct correlation to our understanding and relationship to landscape and Place.
