Andy Goldsworthy: Shadow Stone Fold

Country Park

Sheepfolds are used to gather animals for stock management and are common across Britain. Following on from projects in Scotland and Cumbria in which Goldsworthy worked with existing folds in various states of disrepair, the artist consulted with a tenant farmer at YSP to design and replace a wooden fold in the Country Park with a permanent stone structure. 

Shadow Stone Fold contains a large stone for people to make ‘shadows’. Goldsworthy made his first rainshadow in St. Abbs in 1984, by lying on the ground when it began to rain, waiting for the shower to pass, and leaving behind a dry ‘shadow’. The Shadow Fold stone was installed on 8 February 2007, and in the late afternoon he lay in the first snowfall of the year, making and recording the work’s first shadow.
