    Giuseppe Penone | The National Library of France

    12 October 2021 – 23 January 2022

    The National Library of France welcomes Giuseppe Penone, whose work questions, with force and poetry, the links between man and nature. Penone has produced Pensieri e linfa (Sap and thought) for the occasion, a spectacular installation designed from a huge tree trunk around which a text written by the artist is wrapped.

    Alongside this emblematic work, unpublished and monumental pieces stand alongside drawings, photographs, bibliophile books and artists’ books, as well as a series of 18 engravings recently created by the artist, who donated them to the Library. This carte blanche to one of the major artists of our time is an invitation to stroll through a work that questions the notions of trace, time and memory, resonating here with the heritage collections and the missions of the BnF.
