Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » In 1989 Goldsworthy constructed his 'Wall that went for a walk' in the Grizedale Forest, Cumbria, which drew on the walling techniques of the area. Now, aided by a team of wallers from Scotland and the north of England, he has made its successor at the Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park in New York State. At first following the foundations of the original wall he found there, his wall then describes a series of increasingly voluptuous arabesques before plunging down into a lake. Rising again on the other side, it heads straight up a grassy slop to stop dead as it reaches a major highway. As the seasons change, so does the wall. Heavily shaded in summer, smothered in a sea of yellow and brown leave in the autumn, it has an almost calligraphic quality in winter as it snakes through the bare trees at the edge of a wood. This sculpture, captured by 100 colour photographs, marks a continuation of the dialogue between wood and stone which Goldsworthy has been exploring for several years. The original wall at Storm King was built after the forest had been cleared, but he discovered its course in the line of trees that had grown through and around it. Goldsworthy traces a new path with his wall, this time in sympathy with the trees, but in the knowledge that it may one day also be destroyed by them.An introduction by the art critic and writer, Kenneth Baker, considers the Storm King wall against the background of Goldsworthy's previous work as well as placing it in the context of other walls he has made in Britain, France and the United States.
