Giuseppe Penone

°1947, Garessio Ponte, Italy  

Giuseppe Penone is a late representative of the Arte Povera movement. Subjects such as ripples in a pond, annual rings of a trunk or veins in a stone have fascinated the artist for over 40 years now (1968- today). La Peau du Vent (The skin of the wind) is the title of the marble work of art which Penone made rise up from a hollow in the dunes in De Haan-Vosseslag. The bronze branch hanging over the marble plate shows what the real tree could bring about in time: overhanging, swaying branches which, due to the weather conditions, cling to and grow together with the plate.
