This catalog offers an immersion in the universe of Giuseppe Penone, visual artist associated with the arte povera movement. His flagship work, Sap and Thought, is presented for the first time: a monumental installation made from the rubbing, on fine linen canvas, of an acacia trunk thirty meters long, the result of fifty years of reflections and of creation around subjects dear to the artist: nature, memory and books.
This book appears on the occasion of the exhibition presented at the National Library of France, François Mitterrand site, from October 12, 2021 to January 23, 2022.
