Riassunto: Starting at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, on the Devon coast, and finishing on the edge of the North Sea in East Anglia, Richard Long has created a work of art out of an eleven-day walk across England. Recorded here in a series of lyrical photographs and short texts, his journey avoided large towns and urban areas, and concentrated on the landscape we think of as quintessentially English - summer cornfields, country pubs and churches, lanes running between hedgerows and little villages. Long is an artist who has helped to redefine the boundaries of art practice, making much of his art as he moves through the different land surfaces which cover the planet, or bringing the environment into the gallery itself, in the form of stone, wood, clay or water. Long brings to Land Art a poetic quality that asks us to re-examine our links with the world around us and look again at surroundings that we may feel that we know well.
L'autore: Richard Long has made works in the landscapes of all the continents except Antarctica, and since 1968 he has exhibited his work in galleries and museums around the world, from Reykjavik to Kyoto.
