About this product
- DescriptionMade 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, t just surviving but growing in an almost impossible situation, have powerful associations in a garden intended as a Holocaust Memorial.
