Giuseppe Penone Palais d’Iéna
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
During FIAC this year, the Palais d’Iéna – the French economic, social and environmental Council has invited Giuseppe Penone to exhibit his work in its great hypostyle hall. For his first exhibition in Paris since 2013, organized in collaboration with Marian Goodman Gallery, the artist is presenting his monumental work "Matrice di Linfa" accompanied by two new sculptures created especially for the exhibition. In the making of “Matrice di Linfa," Penone intervened in the natural development of a fir tree by removing eighty rings of its growth. This work is emblematic of the CESE’s commitment to the environment and celebrates the 80th anniversary of Auguste Perret's architectural masterpiece.
