Giuseppe Penone: Idee di pietra – Olmo

Upper Lake

Idee di pietra – Olmo (2008) was part of A Tree in the Wood, an exhibition in YSP’s light-filled Underground Gallery and across the historic landscape.

Idee di pietra is a series of works in which large river stones are suspended in the branches of cast bronze trees. Translated to ‘ideas of stone’, the series uses boulders that have been slowly eroded and shaped over time by water as analogy for the process of thought and idea generation. Shown here within a small clearing in the woodland and in direct relationship with the surrounding trees, Idee di pietra – Olmo demonstrates how art coexists with nature, with each encouraging us to think more carefully about the other.
