The Bloomberg Commission: Giuseppe Penone: Spazio di Luce (Tree artist)


I can’t believe the serendipity! Full swing into my tree project I run smack into the article of a cultural magazine on an artist I hadn’t heard of before, Giuseppe Penone, who’s art is all around trees ūüôā
I then started to research on You tube for a video that meets the criteria of an interesting blog with a certain level of quality… The appropriate language… Short and stimulating so as to keep the attention of the viewers.
I came up with this and hope you’ll enjoy this unusual form of art.

Published on Sep 4, 2012
Over the past 45 years, Italian artist Giuseppe Penone has examined our relationship to nature. For the latest Bloomberg Commission, he has created a twelve metre bronze cast of a tree, with a radiant gold-leaf interior, which spreads across the columned Whitechapel Gallery.

Everywhere accompanying our very step (trees 3)
———————————————

They are everywhere
Grazing the foot of mountains
Bordering a lake, brushing rooftops,
Designing a niche for a lone abode,
Parading on the Champs-Elysées
Or encircling protectively the Eiffel Tower
Harboring those who hurry home from a
Somber season or guarding the slanting
Façade of a historical house.

They are just everywhere
Accompanying our very step…
Around the globe, we swirl and detect
Leaves ablaze with sun’s warm reflection
Or a trunk soaked by forests flavors
After a sudden gush…
Nourishing and being nourished
By earth’s plentiful.

“Our” trees, the ones that have taken a place… grown on us (Trees 2)

We sometimes have “our” trees…
That go by the name of ghost-tree
Or the-pregnant-tree, growing on
Us, following our shadows on a
Summer stroll. Some appear so
Dainty, others sturdy yet, all
Overcome long harsh winters…
We have even found one surrounded
Lovingly by baby-roots sprouting
Just everywhere, as an extension
Of their own…
