Going Nowhere


This publication highlights a number of Simon Faithfull’s journeys; all of which take us, in one way or other, to the edge of nothingness. Charted with images from the projects, including video-stills, photographs and Faithfull’s own trademark drawings, the journeys are evocatively retraced in four specially commissioned essays by Robert Macfarlane, Alain de Botton, Philip Hoare and Lisa Le Feuvre, plus an introduction by Steven Bode. Emphasising the pivotal place of film and video within Faithfull’s practice, ‘Going Nowhere’ is an indispensable point of entry into this artist’s distinctive and inventive work.
