Italian artist Giuseppe Penone has spent the last 45 years examining modern society's complex relationship with nature. His current installation at the Whitechapel Gallery continues this concept with a huge bronze tree that has been hollowed out and displayed in sections. The piece was made by casting a real tree, which was then chopped up, destroyed and is now only traceable through the art. "The result is eerie and magnificent, a gnarled, complex, strange object. Life's ramifications are suggested by proliferating boughs." (The Guardian)

 

About Whitechapel Gallery

Designed in a distinctive Arts and Crafts architecture style by Charles Harrison Townsend, the Whitechapel, Britain's first purpose-built arts gallery, is renowned both for the beauty of its light, airy space and for embracing the local community in its work. Founded in 1901, extensive refurbishment saw the gallery, reopened in April 2009, double in size. More about Whitechapel Gallery
