British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy ventures into some of the most beautiful and often remote locations on the planet, where he produces, and then photographs, sculptural arrangements of natural materials such as wood, stones, water, dirt, grass, leaves, twigs, snow and ice. Expressing the innate human desire to reveal hidden order and meaning in the cosmos, Goldsworthy’s sculptures are as transitory as nature itself, succumbing to the passage of time and forces of weather.

The photographs and sculptures in this exhibition were produced during a residency in Japan in 1987, and have never been seen in the United States.

Organized by the Haines Gallery in San Francisco, the Frist Art Museum Exhibition featured four large sculptures and 68 photographs of Goldworthy’s work. This exhibition was courtesy of Haines Gallery, San Francisco, California, and the artist.
