An absorbing and intimate documentary portraying the influential British sculptor and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy OBE whose award-winning work is celebrated across the globe.
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 subjects increasing prominence and how his work continues to astound and inspire.
Our screening on Wed 26 September will be introduced by Clive Adams.
From his time as curator at Arnolfini in the 70s, Clive Adams has taken a close interest in artists whose work engage with nature, from JMW Turner to David Nash and Peter Randall-Page. Whilst managing a commercial gallery in London in the 80s, he helped to promote the early career of Andy Goldsworthy, including organising his projects in Japan and the North Pole. In 1990, he wrote the first catalogue raisonné of Andys photoworks, published in Hand to Earth. In 2001, Clive founded the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World whose most recent project Soil Culture became the UKs most substantial contribution to the UN International Year of Soils. www.ccanw.co.uk
