A comprehensive monograph devoted to the work of one of the main representatives of Arte Povera. Giuseppe Penone's work dissects the relationship between man and nature, reflecting the rhythm inherent in the natural cycle of life and sull'impronta time on humans and things. And the exchange between man and nature is inspired by the structure of the book conceived by curator Laurent Busine into seven thematic chapters: the breath, eyes, skin, heart, blood, memory, speech. Carried out in close collaboration with Giuseppe Penone, the book contains critical essays by scholars of international renown. Benjamin Buchloh leads a conversation with the artist that allows you to place the Penone's work in a wider historical perspective, and Didier Semin elaborates a fascinating reflection based on the work The Tree of voice, now on permanent display in the garden of the Tuileries in Paris . The monograph, which takes us from the early works to the more recent achievements, includes 350 illustrations, including drawings, sculptures, installations and photographs, and a sound scientific crucial to understand and contextualize the entire works of Penone, a testament to his important position in 'art of our time.
