Language: English . Brand New Book. Andy Goldsworthy s Passage focuses on the journeys that people, rivers, landscapes, and even stones take through space and time. A cairn made by the renowned sculptor in the Scottish village where he lives reveals the influence that his work close to home has on projects he creates elsewhere. A series involving elm trees, from glowing yellow leaves to dead branches, exemplifies his work s vigorous beauty as well as its association with death and decay. Creations on the beach and in rivers explore the passage of time, while a white chalk path investigates the passing from day into night. Passage also includes the Garden of Stones, a Holocaust memorial at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York, where the artist planted 18 oak trees through holes in hollowed-out, earth-filled boulders. Documenting these and other recent works, this beautiful book is an eloquent testament to Goldsworthy s determination to deepen his understanding of the world around him, and his relationship with it, through his art.

Synopsis : The journeys that people, rivers, landscapes and even stone take through space and time are central to this book. An account of a cairn built on the crest of a small hill at the entrance to the village in Scotland where Andy Goldsworthy lives reveals the importance of his work close to home, which is the inspiration for so much that he then creates elsewhere. Three cairns similar to the one in Scotland now span the United States, marking the artist's own journey across the States as well as the culmination of a form that has played a significant element in his work for the last twenty years. The vigorous beauty of Goldsworthy's work and its connection to death and decay are articulated in a series of works with elm trees. Made next to a small river in the south west of Scotland, the works range from glowing yellow leaves to dead branches that celebrate the life cycle of the elm. The flow and passage of time are explored and strongly expressed by Goldsworthy's works relating to water. Over the past few years the artist has developed an almost obsessive need to work alongside rivers and the sea. Ephemeral works made on the beach and in rivers change and disappear in response to the ebb and flow of water. Passage includes Goldsworthy's most recent commission, the Garden of Stones at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. Eighteen granite boulders, varying in weight from three to fifteen tons, were hollowed out from below with a thermal lance and filled with earth. Oak trees were planted through a small hole in the top of each stone at a ceremony participated in by several Holocaust survivors. These trees, not just surviving but growing in an almost impossible situation, have powerful associations in a garden intended as a Holocaust Memorial.
A propos de l'auteur: Andy Goldsworthy is an internationally renowned sculptor. Thames & Hudson have published many of his books, including Hand to Earth, Wall, Time and Midsummer Snowballs.
