On Tuesday, November 28 at 6 pm, the GTO Atheneum and Cinemanimal will be hosting a screening of the great art documentary RIVERS & TIDES at Villa Maria Cristina.

This 2001 award-winning film looks deeply into the ephemeral work of sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, who works in and with nature to create sculptures of chance that accentuate the natural beauty of our world, Be it via piled stones or gathered wildflowers, tidal driftwood or the meanderings of streams, Goldsworthy has gained worldwide fame working with what is.

“Each work grows, stays, decays – integral parts of a cycle which the photograph shows at its heights, marking the moment when the work is most alive,” he has said of his aesthetic and its use pf photography as a record-keeping tool. “There is an intensity about a work at its peak that I hope is expressed in the image. Process and decay are implicit.

Goldsworthy is from the north of England, and now lives in Scotland. His work has been seen in and commissioned by many of our great museums.

Admission for the screening is 60 pesos. There will be discussion of the film before and after the screening. Next up: Mark Morris’ inventive take on The Nutcracker, The Hard Nut on December 12.

The screening will be at the Maria Christina Hotel
