Goldsworthy in Guernsey

This temporary installation on Pembroke Bay in Guernsey by leading British artist Andy Goldsworthy was his only UK based work this year.  In association with ‘Art and Islands’, the piece entitled ‘sand stones’ took Andy and his helpers six hours to complete and was gradually eroded and washed away by the incoming tide.

While I was on the beach I was very fortunate to be able to talk with Andy about Sark and the forthcoming Artists for Nature Foundation’s project planned here for next year.  I also gave him a copy of the CD ‘Sark voices’ and he told me that he was hoping to come to Sark next year.  Watch this space…
