13 Oct Andy Goldsworthy Featured on NPR’s Fresh Air
Kentuck Knob is lucky to have two Andy Goldsworthy pieces in our Sculpture collection. Learn more about the artist in an interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air. From the introduction:
The list of elements Goldsworthy has worked with includes ice, snow, mud, wind and the rising tide. In one piece, he used twigs to fashion a giant spider web hanging from a tree. In another, he decorated a stone wall with sheets of ice. He has also lain in the rain to create “rain shadows” in the shape of his body on city streets.
Goldsworthy refers to his creations as “ephemeral works.” He says, “When I make an ephemeral work, when it’s finished, that’s the moment that it ends, in a way.”
