Giuseppe Penone. Sève et pensée, BNF

Alberi inversi
BnF I François-Mitterrand I Gallery 2
Quai François Mauriac, Paris XIIIe
October 12, 2021 - January 23, 2022

The Bibliothèque nationale de France is hosting the Italian artist Giuseppe Penone, a key figure in contemporary art, for his first major exhibition in Paris since 2013.
Penone, whose work remains a vital, poetic examination of mankind’s links with nature, has especially created for the occasion Pensieri e linfa (Sap and Thought), a spectacular art installation based on the imprint of a tree trunk, on either side of which the artist has added a text in his own hand.
Facing this emblematic work, previously unseen monumental pieces are on display alongside drawings, photographs, bibliophiles’ books and artists’ books, as well as an arresting series of 18 prints recently created by Penone, who has gifted them to the Library. The free rein given here to one of our era's major artists, is an invitation for visitors to immerse themselves in his outstanding body of work and reflect on his writings and notions of traces, time and memory, all in perfect resonance with the Bibliothèque nationale de France’s heritage collections and missions.

EUGÈNE VIALA Comprehensive catalog of the engraved work

369-2. Coin du monde
Eugène Viala (1859-1913) was at the same time a painter, a writer and an engraver, but it is especially in etching that his art develops insight into a true singularity.

He was an indomitable and rebellious nature, a tormented, independent being on the fringe of society.
Misanthropic and solitary, anti-clerical believer, anarchist free thinker, he defined himself, above all, as a great nature lover.
His engravings have for prime subject some austere aspects of his homeland, the Lévézou (Aveyron)
His prints are marked by an almost diabolical darkness. Anxiety and obsession with death are omnipresent.There is great depth, harshness and sadness in his style
The fantastic and visionary dimension of his work places Viala in the lineage of the 19th century painters- engravers who, from Francisco de Goya to Odilon Redon were adepts of the suggestive power of black shades of ink

* Jean Costecalde, a passionate collector who has become over the years the best connoisseur of Viala's work, devoted for many years to the cause of his fellow countryman from Aveyron, had in hand all the assets to establish the comprehensive catalog, essential sesame to the entry of artists often get forgotten in the artistic pantheon.
