Leaning Into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy

“Because time erases or alters Mr. Goldsworthy’s sculptures, movies are the ideal medium to capture them…. The surprise of Leaning Into the Wind is that it’s just as concerned with how time has changed Mr. Goldsworthy.” (New York Times)

Whether painting vivid stripes down urban stairways with colorful petals, arranging massive boulders just so, or walking through a hedge, Andy Goldsworthy makes surprisingly moving work that’s focused, he says, on “the permanence of temporary objects and the temporality of permanent objects.” Sixteen years after Rivers and Tides caught the world off guard with its meditative beauty, filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer has returned to Goldsworthy, exploring his work and the impact of the years on the artist himself. With its lush cinematography, the film helps us reconnect with an elemental quality in the world around us that we may have lost the ability to see.

Tickets: $9 (members), $14 (nonmembers)
