Richard Serra at Film Forum

Richard Serra in “Thinking on Your Feet”.

Maria Anna Tappeiner’s documentary Richard Serra: Thinking on Your Feet (2005) screens at Film Forum in New York City through September 2nd. The 94-minute film follows Serra (Season 1) through the creation and construction of his installation The Matter of Time, commissioned by the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. In the film, the artist “elucidates how ‘matter imposes form on form,’ the unique qualities of steel, and how a space may move simultaneously in two directions.”

The Matter of Time was the largest sculpture commission in history. Seven sculptures comprise the installation, which is permanently installed at Guggenheim Bilbao. Three related audio tours can be downloaded from the Museum’s website.

Film Forum is located at 209 W. Houston St., between Sixth Avenue and Varick Street, New York, NY. Showtimes are 1:15, 3:15, 6:00, 8:00, and 10:00pm.
