Sixteen years after the release of the ground-breaking film Rivers and Tides - Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time director Thomas Riedelsheimer has returned to work with the artist. Leaning into the Wind - Andy Goldsworthy follows Andy on his exploration of the layers of his world and the impact of the years on himself and his art. As Goldsworthy introduces his own body into the work it becomes at the same time even more fragile and personal and also sterner and tougher, incorporating massive machinery and crews on his bigger projects. Riedelsheimer's exquisite film illuminates Goldsworthy's mind as it reveals his art. Written by Leslie Hills

Beyond cairns
21 July 2019 | by dennis-11345See all my reviews

Those stacks of stones on the beach, perfectly balanced: they are called cairns. The word comes from Scottish Gaelic. Andy Goldsworthy has lived and worked in Scotland most of his life touching, not just stones, but also leaves and fallen trees, moss and ice and wind. In the process, he has developed an art form that seems more Buddhist than anything partly because it is constructed from detritus and is so ephemeral. His work will stay with you a long time.
