Giuseppe Penone: A Tree in the Wood

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

26 May 2018 - 28 Apr 2019

Giuseppe Penone has worked with wood, stone and water for more than 50 years. This extensive retrospective includes works from all five decades of his career, tracing Penone’s evolving investigation into humanity’s connections to the organic world. Open-air sculptures, many of which have never been seen in the UK, reveal the interplay between art and nature that animates Penone’s work and thought, while the gallery’s indoor space includes works in marble that illustrate the artist’s fascination with skin. Find out more about the Penone exhibition from the YSP’s website.
