Leaning into the Wind – Andy Goldsworthy + talk by Kim Wilkie
November 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm£4 - £8
Sixteen years after their first collaboration with the groundbreaking Rivers and Tides, filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer returns with Leaning Into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy, 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 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 its subject’s increasing prominence and how his work continues to astound and inspire.
The movie 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, Wilderness estate, and many others is a life long fan of Andy Goldsworthy’s work. Dinner will be available afterwards at the Roth Bar & Grill, and our thanks to Hauser & Wirth Somerset for supporting this film event.
