Sculpture usually started out as a tool of spiritual articulation, glorifying life and decay, and the relationship life and death develop with Earth. Decades after, that facet of sculpture is still tough to totally ignore. This program shows Waldemar Januszczak, the British art critic as he journeys through North and South Africa witnessing spectacular instances of sculpture bound to physical surrounding and nature. Starting with Smithson’s Spiral Jetty and Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels in the U.S. to the primitive Inca civilization of Machu Picchu in Peru, Januszczak is committed to disclose sculpture’s inseparable connection with the planet’s surface in addition to the cosmos. Deciphering primitive Stonehenge, unearthing the mysterious stories related to Nazca lines in Peru, and constructing fresh sculptures employing contemporary landscape artist Andy Goldsworthy, Januszczak offers an artistic odyssey that viewers will cherish!
