Giuseppe Penone: Vene di pietra tra i rami

Vene di pietra tra i rami (2015) was part of A Tree in the Wood, an exhibition in YSP’s light-filled Underground Gallery and across the historic landscape.

At over 13 metres high and translated as ‘stone veins between the branches’, Vene di pietra tra i rami announced Penone’s major exhibition at the entrance to the Park. Suspended in this cast bronze tree, a 20-ton block of stone challenges gravity and balance. This rare iron-red granite has two flat faces and two that bear the marks of the drills that were used to extract it from the quarry. The markings across its surface give a sense of movement and energy, extending the links that Penone makes between the veins in stone and the veins of the human body. Ideas relating to growth, memory and time can be found throughout many of Penone’s large open-air sculptures. Humanity’s intertwined connections with the organic world are at the heart of his practice, and the artist continues to find new ways of revealing the sculptural qualities of natural objects.
