Giuseppe Penone at Yorkshire Sculpture Park May 26, 2018 - April 28, 2019

Giuseppe Penone presents his extensive new exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park's Underground Gallery. Works drawn from the past five decades of Penone’s career, including many never shown in the UK, trace his evolving and thoughtful consideration of humanity’s intimate relationship with the natural world. His poetic practice addresses themes around the body, nature, time, touch and memory, played out across different materials from stone, acacia thorns and graphite, to thousands of laurel leaves.

Giuseppe Penone at Fendi Headquarters, Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana January 27- July 15, 2017

The work of Giuseppe Penone will be the subject of the first exhibition of contemporary art at the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, Fendi’s headquarters.

The exhibition, titled Matrice will include some of Penone’s older works such as Soffio di Foglie, a huge pile of leaves on which the artist has left an imprint of his body, Abete, Ripetere II Bosco, and Spine d’Acacia, made entirely of thorns and which resembles the lines of the artist’s mouth. There will also be two new pieces, including a 30m-long horizontal sculpture, formed from a tree that has been excavated and the interior filled with a bronze mold, and which will occupy an entire wing of the building. The outside space will feature a momentous sculpture of two bronze and marble trees.
