- About the work
To make this work, Giuseppe Penone uncovered the knags and the rounded tree shape in an industrially-hewn timber, one year ring at a time, ending the process at a specific moment in the tree’s history. Giuseppe Penone had then been exploring the relationship between man and nature for a few years, in the forest surrounding his home in the Alps. His method involved fusing the creative processes of nature and art. Penone shared the approach of using simple materials and conceptually based methods with the Italian avantgarde movement of arte povera – “poor art. In arte povera artists used “low” materials such as rocks, cardboard and wood, rebelling against marble and other exclusive materials used for Italian “high art”.
