Description

In a monumental oeuvre spanning more than forty years, Penone has  explored and expanded our understanding of what constitutes sculpture  through the interplay between the human body, nature, and art. His work  represents a poetic expansion of Post-Minimalism's, and specifically,  Arte Povera's radical break with conventional media, emphasizing the  transformative logic involved in the processes of respiration, growth,  and aging that are common to all living beings.  Housed in a box,  the four new essays and conversation are collected in one volume, while  twelve insightful texts investigate the main typologies that can be  found as organizing principles in the work.
