Giuseppe Penone

I'm rather disappointed to have heard that the Giuseppe Penone sculptures in the AGO's Galleria Italia are being replaced with a new exhibition this month (possibly already), although I wouldn't be surprised if Penone wanted his trees back. I would too if I were him. I made sure to take photos of the space before it changed.

Penone is awesome because he actually carves into tree trunks and creates inner mini trees. He also snatched up this fallen tree from the Palace of Versailles after a storm and took it all the way to Canada. It won't be easy for the AGO to beat this in the next exhibition.
