Statement

The central theme of Giuseppe Penone’s work is an exploration of the relationship between man and nature. Born in 1947, he grew up in Garessio, a rural community south of Turin, and his empathy with nature stems from this experience. For Penone, nature represents the great memory, the ever-present model of the processes of change and growth that shape the individual life. His art is often concerned with the revelation and realisation in the form of sculpture of natural processes, which may normally be hidden or invisible.

A solo exhibition of the artist’s work can be seen at Musèe des Arts Contemporians – Site du Grand-Hornu, Belgium until 13 February 2011. An exhibition of work by Giuseppe Penone was held at Frith Street Gallery in 2008. A major exhibition of new work on view at MAMBO, Bologna in 2008 will travel to Birmingham’s Ikon Gallery in 2009. Other important solo exhibitions include Caixa Forum, Barcelona; Milton Keynes Gallery; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and the Drawing Centre, New York (all 2004). Penone’s work played a central part in Tate Modern’s survey exhibition of Arte Povera and it has been included in many group exhibitions.
