ANDY GOLDSWORTHY. Walking Wall. On permanent vie. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Kansas City, Missouri

Galerie Lelong & Co. is pleased to announce the completion of Andy Goldsworthy’s site-specific work, Walking Wall, at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri. The permanent sculpture inches into the Bloch Building of the museum, appearing to walk from the Sculpture Park and into the museum through a glass wall.

Beginning in March 2019 and comprising five stages, Walking Wall fulfills the artist’s long-held vision to build a stone wall that moves across the landscape. The sculpture continues Goldsworthy’s longstanding investigation into wall making; their index of passing time, their inherent association to boundaries and the differences and dialogues between British and American doctrines to these boundaries, as well as their ability to reflect on permanence and the transient.

Speaking with Director & CEO Julián Zugazagoitia, Goldsworthy said: “It is in all sorts of ways an anti-wall. It doesn’t follow boundaries, borders. It crosses them. It connects things. It does everything walls normally don’t do […] The art is not just the stones or the wall itself. The stories are the art too.”

Walking Wall was commissioned b the Hall Family Foundation in honor of Morton and Estelle Sosland.
