Kay Walsh: All His Rights

Kay Walsh spent a year on the Quan­tock Hills and Exmoor Nation­al Park chron­i­cling the red deer there.

Learning to stalk with a National Trust deerstalker opened up a debate about how these wild animals remain present on the hills, raising questions of their future and the protection of their species.

All His Rights (2019) is a video artwork resulting from this year-long research project. It explores the conflicting opinions about how best to protect the red deer within the local community, looking closely at the thoughts and experiences of rangers, forestry workers, deerstalkers and local enthusiasts.

Her work takes the viewer on a journey of slow looking and slow movement to explore nature, stories and places within the wild landscapes of the South West.
