A film by Eric Minh Swenson. (Film number one-thousand two-hundred and nineteen in the series.) Adrian Landon is an emerging American sculptor with national exposure. Though unintentional, his work is primarily non-conceptual, defined mostly by expressions of raw energy and powerful movement. A central theme of Landon's work is horses; he has even constructed a life-sized, mechanical horse sculpture. Ultimately, Landon is employing steel to create fascinating forms with strong impacts. EMS Legacy Films is a continuing series of short films produced by EMS on artists and exhibitions. His art films can be seen at https://vimeo.com/channels/76542
In September 2016, Adrian Landon was on live Television in Madrid, Spain, on the TV show “El Hormiguero” (the Anthill) with the Mechanical Horse, and with actors Renee Zellweger and Patrick Dempsey. The Sculpture was shipped to Madrid and back in a huge crate, just for 3 minutes of air time!!
