Years in the making, this exhibition explores one artist’s shifting and profoundly meditative investigation of humanity’s connections to the organic world.

In a beautiful pairing of preoccupation and place, this exhibition brings together an artist intimately concerned with the relationship between humanity and the natural world, and the UK’s leading open-air gallery.

Unfolding across the landscape and Underground Gallery of Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a selection of works from five decades of world-renowned Italian artist Guiseppe Penone’s career – many of which have not previously been seen in the UK – including a monumental 30-metre-long fir tree, bisected vertically and carved along its growth rings.

The culmination of a dialogue over many years, this exhibition is the most extensive showcase of Penone’s work in the UK to date.
