Cine and Sculpture: Andy Goldsworthy “Rivers and Tides”

On Tuesday, May 9 at 7:30 p.m., we will have a new ICRE Film and Sculpture session. The documentary film RIVERS AND TIDES will be screened, about the sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, a Scottish artist who has been working for twenty years creating works of art in forests and riverbeds around the world, with no other tools than his hands.

IMPORTANT: Because the room has a limited capacity, there is a need to have some control over the number of attendees. To do this, you will need to confirm your attendance at socis@icre.cat. This activity is free for all members, as long as the confirmation is made in advance. If you do not, you will still be able to attend (although we cannot guarantee that there will be room for everyone) by paying 5 euros, the same amount as non-members who wish to attend.

Tuesday, MAY 9 Time: 7:30 p.m.

Andy Goldsworthy (Chesire, England, July 26, 1956) is an English land-art sculptor, photographer and environmentalist. Between 1974 and 1975, he studied Fine Arts at Bradford School of Art, in his hometown, and from 1975 to 1978 at Preston Polytechnic in Preston (Lancashire), where he became familiar with other British artists following an environmental doctrine similar

Goldsworthy is interested in the essence of things, their colors, their shapes and qualities, their place in time and in nature. His creations do not reveal an idyllic nature, but are generated from an understanding of its physical qualities. It manages to show the strength that, behind an apparent fragility, resides in all natural elements.
