Giuseppe Penone. Sap and thought

Exhibtion / The Bibliothèque nationale de France is hosting the Italian artist Giuseppe Penone, a key figure in contemporary art, for his first major exhibition in Paris since 2013. Penone, whose work is a vital, poetic examination of humankind’s links with nature, has created Pensieri e linfa (Sap and Thought) specially for the occasion, a spectacular installation based on the imprint of a tree trunk, on either side of which the artist has added a text in his own hand.
