Giuseppe Penone opens exhibition in Château La Coste's recently constructed gallery pavilion
Works on paper, large scale bronze and marble works, and the delicate replication of a single grain of sand are included in a context that brings a poignant resonance to Penone’s interest in questions of nature and identity in todays industrialised society.


AIX-EN-PROVENCE.- Château La Coste announces an exhibition by Giuseppe Penone that opens today in the recently constructed gallery pavilion by Italian architect, Renzo Piano.

Considering Piano’s design, the approach, and the surrounding landscape, Penone has carefully selected works that will be presented both inside and outside the gallery, creating an overall dialogue between his artwork, architecture and nature.

Works on paper, large scale bronze and marble works, and the delicate replication of a single grain of sand are included in a context that brings a poignant resonance to Penone’s interest in questions of nature and identity in todays industrialised society.

A publication accompanies the exhibition, coordinated by Laurent Busine and including a new drawing by Renzo Piano, and new texts by Didier Semin and Giuseppe Penone.

Giuseppe Penone was born in 1947, in the small town of Garessio in the Piedmont region of Italy. He studied at the Accademia di Belle Arte in Turin where, he contiunes to live and work. Initially associated with the an Italian movement coined “Arte Povera”, Penone has gone on to establish himself as one of the most important sculptors practicing today. Recent exhibitions include a major survey exhibition in the Museo di art modern e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto (MART) (2016), and exhibitions atRijksmuseum Amsterdam in 2016 and at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Grenoble in 2014, the gardens of the Château de Versailles (2013), Madison Square Park, New York (2013). In 2007 he represented Italy at the 52nd Venice Biennale.

In the midst of Provence, between the historical city of Aix-En-Provence and the Luberon National Park, Château La Coste offers a unique experience at the heart of its 500 acre, biodynamic vineyard where Wine, Art & Architecture live in harmony.

Artists (Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, Andy Goldsworthy, Tetsuo Miyajima, Richard Serra, Tom Shannon, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Lee Ufan, Ai Weiwei, Franz West…) and architects (Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Jean prouvé, Renzo Piano…) were invited to visit the Domain and discover the beauty of Provence. In turn, they were encouraged to choose a place in the landscape that spoke directly to them and were given the freedom to create a work that would live there.
