Artist Vision- Artist Dreams
On November 21 we will host our second movie, featuring an artist or an artistic vision.
JOIN FRIENDS AND FELLOW ART FOLK TO SOCIALIZE AND CONNECT.
Using our new state of the art facility you will have the chance to join us November 21st at 7pm in the main theatre for the big screen showing of the critically acclaimed RIVERS AND TIDES featuring the life and work of Andy Goldsworthy.
On one level, this film can bring out the child in us that just wants to build sandcastles and throw stuff in the air just for the sake of seeing it fall down again. On a deeper level though, it explores a profound desire to reconnect with the land. I thoroughly empathized with the artist when he said, "when I'm not out here (alone) for any length of time, I feel unrooted."
I considered Andy Goldsworthy one of the great contemporary artists. I'm familiar with his works mainly through his coffee-table books and a couple art gallery installations. But to see his work in motion, captured perfectly through Riedelsheimer's lens, was a revelation. Unfrozen in time, Goldsworthy's creations come alive, swirling, flying, dissolving, crumbling, crashing.
And that's precisely what he's all about: Time. The process of creation and destruction. Of emergence and disappearing. Of coming out of the Void and becoming the Universe, and back again. There's a shamanic quality about him, verging on madness. You get the feeling, watching him at work, that his art is a lifeforce for him, that if he didn't do it, he would whither and perish.
Luckily for us, Goldsworthy is able to share his vision through the communication medium of photography. Otherwise, with the exception of a few cairns and walls, they would only exist for one person.
We will follow this evening showing with discussion and socialness. This is the start of something big.
