SEEING THE LANDSCAPE: RICHARD SERRA'S TE TUHIRANGI CONTOUR

PRODUCER/DIRECTOR ALBERTA CHU (2003) 

Best known for his massive steel sculptures, Richard Serra is one of the most influential artists of the last century. The creation of his site-specific Te Tuhirangi Contour for Gibbs Farm in New Zealand reveals the artist’s creative process and the complex engineering required to realize a deceptively simple sculpture. A dramatic five years in the making, Te Tuhirangi Contour finds Serra’s artistic vision at odds with his patron, his materials, his environment, and the harsh realities of physics. This film documents the making of a great work of art.

 

Watch the entire film on the Gibbs Farm website.
