Opening tonight at The Nuart!
Sixteen years after the release of the film Rivers and Tides – Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time comes Leaning Into The Wind, a metaphysical expose by Thomas Riedelsheimer on artist Goldworthy’s distinct approach of blending nature and human aspects into a cosmic synergy that simultaneously awes and inspires.
Goldworthy makes works of art using the materials and conditions that he encounters wherever he is. Using earth, rocks, leaves, ice, snow, rain, or sunlight, the resulting artworks exist briefly before they are altered and erased by natural processes. He also uses his own body as a medium, or through actions such as spitting, throwing, climbing and walking and explores layers of his environment while introducing his own body into the works ranging from flower petals to larger projects utilizing heavy construction equipment.
Riedelsheimer’s exquisite film illuminates Goldsworthy’s thought processes as it reveals his art and the interconnectedness of the human spirit with universal forces. This is one you don’t want to miss. Highly recommended!
