Discover Nancy Holt's film exploring her site-specific land art

About

American artist Nancy Holt (1938–2014) was a pioneer of site-specific installation.

Experience her 26-minute film Sun Tunnels 1978 at Tate Liverpool + RIBA North, which documents the making of her large-scale sculptural installation in the Utah desert. The film shows the construction of four huge concrete tunnels that are positioned to align with the sunrise and sunset of the summer and winter solstices. It features footage of these sculptures as they frame the sun and capture and cast the sunlight into different patterns. The work brings together themes of art, architecture and ecology.

Sun Tunnels is courtesy of the Holt/Smithson Foundation and Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), New York.
