Film screening: ‘Andy Goldsworthy: Leaning Into The Wind’, plus talk by Kim Wilkie
Join us for a screening of Thomas Riedelsheimer’s documentary ‘Andy Goldsworthy: Leaning Into The Wind’, an absorbing documentary portrait of the influential British sculptor and environmentalist.
An award-winning, globally celebrated artist, Andy Goldsworthy OBE is known for works situated in rural and urban settings that combine materials and conditions from everyday surroundings – both monumental works of land art and others that exist only briefly before being altered or erased by natural processes.
Riedelsheimer intimately captures Goldsworthy’s exploration of the world and himself through these ephemeral and permanent workings on the landscape, cities, and his own body. As much an illumination of Goldsworthy’s mind as it is an exquisitely shot exploration of his unique approaches to art, ‘Leaning Into The Wind’ journeys from his hometown of Dumfriesshire, UK to France, Brazil and the USA as he creates stunning works of art from the world around him.
Meditative, transportive and visually ravishing, this is an essential reflection of Goldworthy’s increasing prominence and how his work continues to astound and inspire.
The film will be followed by a talk from Kim Wilkie, acclaimed landscape architect responsible for recent landscaping of The Victoria and Albert Museum, The National History Museum, and the Wilderness Estate. Wilkie is also a life long fan of Andy Goldsworthy’s work.
This event is organised by Where West Begins and is part of Hauser & Wirth Somerset’s Autumn Artist Documentary Film Series.
