Richard Long - Mendoza Walking - 2016
British artist Richard Long (b.1945) was the recipient of the annual Whitechapel Gallery Art Icon award for his lifetime achievements in 2015. The limited edition Mendoza Walking is donated by the artist in support of the Gallery’s exhibitions and educational programmes.
For over forty years, Richard Long has pioneered walking as sculptural practice and has visited some of the world’s most remote and wild landscapes. Although the works produced are informed by the specific environment in which they were created, they also transcend territorial limits. Following his 17 day journey through the Tupungato and Cordón del Plata in the Andes mountains of Mendoza Argentina, this edition is inspired by the topography and nature of the country.
