Arles 2013: –Guiseppe Penone


In front of the Chapelle du Méjan, in a tree that doesn't look as if it's in bronze (though it is), an engraved stone lintel is balanced on branches in an echo of the decorative lintels that can be seen on some of the surrounding facades. This work by Giuseppe Penone, was specially created for Arles 2013. 
On the ground floor of the chapel, a sort of retrospective brings lesser known photographic work into dialogue with several sublime or explicit pieces. A tree cut into two and turned upside down occupies the centre of the nave. Then, we discover black and white photographs in which we see trees and the body of the artist meeting together, adjusting to one another, pushing up against one another and being transformed.
