Respirer l'ombre

Giuseppe Penone, born in Italy in 1947, is associated with the Arte Povera movement. He constantly mixes two practices: sculpture and observation; they go hand in hand and organize his work.


An artist of international renown, he has had numerous solo exhibitions: Paris, Centre Pompidou, 2004; Venice Biennale, 2007; Château de Versailles, 2013; Florence, Les Offices, 2021; Paris, BNF, 2021.


This fascinating book brings together all of his writings, presented chronologically. These short texts allow us to better understand his work and his personality. They are published in an expanded edition with his latest contributions, about a hundred sketches, notes and unpublished drawings.
