Can a work of art help us know our world differently? In this first scholarly study of Giuseppe Penone, art historian Elizabeth Mangini argues that the Italian artist's engagement of the body's multiple senses constitutes a new theory of sculpture as a means to connect with and know the phenomenal world. Through close readings of signal works across Penone's five-decade career - from his emergence in the context of 1960s Arte Povera to his position as a preeminent contemporary artist today - Mangini demonstrates that Penone refuses modernist opticality, recasts artistic labour, and emphasizes a non-anthropocentric concept of time. This approach challenges viewers to broaden their sensory and temporal perceptions, creating structurally significant new ways to understand human experience.Giuseppe Penone is best known for his engagement with trees, which he employs as raw material, imagery, and an active force in the creative process. Seeing Through Closed Eyelids suggests that such works materialize the perceptible tensions between any organism and its environment. By locating Penone's art in its social context and connecting it to broader discourses about art's status, theories of phenomenology, and the anthropocene, this book offers an original reading of Penone's work, as well as a wider view to the artistic generation for whom sculpture was a means to probe the nature of experience itself at the dawn of postmodernism.
