Wayfaring by And Now:

Step into the unknown.

Wayfaring is a journey of exploration, inspired by the present landscape and ancient routes of the Icknield Way, which runs from North Norfolk to the Dorset Coast and has existed since pre-Roman times. Journeying along these routes, commissioned artists And Now: continue to create a series of artworks inviting audiences to think about movement and migration; how we arrive at, understand, inhabit and leave a space.

Wayfaring occurs at a series of locations, each within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; the sites speak of opportunities and tensions present in the countryside today. The route surfs the leading edge of the chalk geology along the interwoven trackways and paths that connect the many archaeological and historic sites.

Using local and found materials the artists craft a bespoke installation in each location that audiences can move through, investigate and contribute to. On the final evenings fire, music and performance transform the installation in a rousing celebration of everybody there coming together, of paths crossing for one single night.

The Wayfaring digital artwork which accompanies the journey is an online sketchbook of observations and learnings created by And Now: which compliments the live on-location work, which has been online since May 2018.
