BREATHING EARTH: Susumu Shingu’s Dream
First show: June 27
A FILM BY THOMAS RIEDELSHEIMER
75-year-old Japanese artist Susumu Shingu converses with nature through his sculptures. His lifelong dialogue with the wind and with water has given the world uniquely beautiful works of fluid, unpredictable and ever-changing movement. Susumu renders visible the opaque and the unseen and opens to us new perspectives. Thomas Riedelsheimer, the director of the hypnotically dazzling RIVERS AND TIDES: ANDY GOLDSWORTHY WORKING WITH TIME, again reveals awe-inspiring beauty that accents breath-taking, natural settings as he accompanies this quiet and unassuming man in pursuit of a dream; a quest to create an awareness of our planet, our breathing earth and our human values. BREATHING EARTH is a film about the wind, the philosophy of a wise person, about art and love and dreams. In Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer. (Germany 2013). Digital. 97 mins.
