Walking Home (Again) is a solo exhibition by the artist, pedestrian and writer Bram Thomas Arnold. The Fish Factory is excited to be showcasing the outcomes of this in-depth meditation on attempting to walk from London to St.Gallen, Switzerland. Walking Home (Again) is an exploration into the dangers and fascinations of memory and interpretation, myth and story telling. The exhibition is a body of work devised and developed through a practice-based PhD at Falmouth University, and will evolve throughout the period of its 3 week exhibition. Bram’s interdisciplinary practice, composed under foot, takes a myriad of forms including drawing, printmaking, video, performance and installation.


Walking Home (Again) includes the presentation of Fondue, a performance-as-dinner-party that takes place in the centre of the main space at the Fish Factory. Fondue walks through architecture, war, monasticism, death & poetry, home and belonging, with piles of molten cheese, home made bread, vinyl records and gold leaf for company. Tickets for these events are strictly limited:
