Movie Info

Andy Goldsworthy's art is supposed to fall apart. He creates large-scale outdoor sculptures and artworks out of natural materials like mud, wood, ice and stone in an attempt to imbue the physical world with a spiritual, ephemeral element. Director Thomas Riedelsheimer follows Goldsworthy as he constructs his art everywhere from upstate New York to his home village in Scotland, and questions the solitary artist about his inspirations, frustrations and artistic goals.

Audience Reviews for Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time

    [font=Century Gothic][color=sienna]"Rivers and Tides" is an interesting, low-key documentary about Andy Goldsworthy, a Scottish sculptor who works in nature while using material that he finds. The documentary captures his working at home in rural Scotland and abroad in Nova Scotia, New York and France. Goldsworthy is not sure what his sculptures will turn out due to the very unpredictability of what he is working with. Some of them are designed to be carried away by the rivers and tides. Thus, he illustrates how nature is ephemeral. It's very different seeing artwork that is not permanent and hanging in a museum.(I was thinking about the temporary paintings that were created only for "The Mystery of Picasso.") Goldsworthy captures these temporary sculptures by photographing them. [/color][/font]

    Another documentary about a kooky artist. This one manufactures art of nature and watches as nature washes it away. It's kind of like those little stick forts that you made as a kid that washed away eventually down the drain. This guy never stopped making those forts.

    i became interested in this documentary because of the Fred Frith score- which is excellent. Goldsworthy's art is spectacular to behold, but i feel the documentary would have been better with less speaking- just letting the art speak for itself.
