This documentary, shot in four countries and across four seasons follows nature artist, ANDY GOLDSWORTHY on a fantastic journey as he builds his large-scale sculptures from New York to Scotland. Celebrated for his deep connection with the earth, Goldworthy uses natural ephemera and sculpt his pieces, illuminating the captivating nexus between nature and art. Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer (2001)
Landscape sculptor Andy Goldsworthy is renowned throughout the world for his work in ice, stone, leaves, wood. His own remarkable still photographs are Goldsworthy’s way of talking about his often ephemeral works, of fixing them in time. Director Thomas Riedelsheimer worked with Goldsworthy for over a year to shoot this film.
According to the Rivers and Tides website, what Riedelsheimer found was “a profound sense of breathless discovery and uncertainty in Goldsworthy’s work, in contrast to the stability of conventional sculpture. The film captures the essential unpredictability of working with rivers and with tides, feels into a sense of liquidity in stone, travels with Goldsworthy underneath the skin of the earth and reveals colour and energy flowing through all things.”
