Giuseppe Penone initiated his education in sculpture at Accademia Albertina (Italy), and is considered one of the most important names of Arte Povera. Dated of the late 1960s, the Italian movement focused on some principles that orient the artist’s production yet today: the idea of work as a process, as well as the use of non-conventional materials and elements in the art field.

Dynamics observed in nature, such as the passage of time and climate changes, are recurring in his production. Part of his works are sculptural interventions directly made in nature. In 2014, he was awarded the Praemium Imperiale International Arts Award (Japan); among his exhibitions are the participation in the Venice Biennale (Italy) and Kassel Documenta (Germany).
