Penone’s bio from the Nasher Center website states,
From his conceptual and performative works of the 1960s and 70s to the large-scale sculptural installations of the past 10 years, Penone has explored intimate, sensate, and metaphysical connections with nature. Working in a stunning variety of materials—including clay, wood, stone, metal, plaster, resin, acacia thorns—the artist makes palpable and present the analogous processes of nature and art.
The brief set of images from the exhibit, available on nashercenter.org are simply stunning.
Being the River, Repeating the Forest will be on view now through January 10th, but don’t wait for your chance to see this breathtaking meditation on the power and beauty of nature!
