Both Edward Burtynsky: The Industrial Sublime, on view in the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery from May 25 through September 3, 2012, and Constable: Oil Sketches from the Victoria and Albert Museum, on view in the Upper-Level Galleries from June 22 through September 30, 2012, explore the natural world. Edward Burtynsky’s (b. 1955) work depicts modern landscapes that have been irrevocably altered by industries that feed the world’s appetite for material goods, while John Constable’s (1776–1837) oil sketches reflect his study of transient atmospheric effects, emblematic of one of the great innovators of British landscape painting. The documentary films that support these exhibitions examine various subjects related to the natural world and offer varying perspectives of the planet that we inhabit.
About the film:
“When I create a work, I often take it to the very edge of its collapse,” says Andy Goldsworthy in the opening of the award winning documentary Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time. Become entranced in his process, as the British artist creates intricate and ephemeral sculptures from natural materials, playing against time and weather. Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer, 2001. 90 minutes. DVD. Unrated.
