Seeing Through Closed Eyelids: Giuseppe Penone and the Nature of Sculpture, Toronto Italian Studies

Seeing Through Closed Eyelids: Giuseppe Penone and the Nature of Sculpture, Toronto Italian Studies, written by Elizabeth Mangini. 238 pages.

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 5-decade career, from his emergence in the context of 1960s Arte Povera to his position as a pre-eminent contemporary artist today, Mangini demonstrates how Penone refuses modernist opticality, recasts artistic labour, and emphasizes a non-anthropocentric concept of time. Penone’s 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 of the artistic generation for whom sculpture was a means to probe the nature of experience itself at the dawn of postmodernism.

We all have that inner voice, a desire, a calling that hungers to be born through us. Too often this voice is repressed, which results in living small in the shadows of what we can truly become. Learn to both sense and listen to the intuitive impulses of the inner voice that longs to be heard. It does not matter what your background is, who you are, what you do, your age or where you live, what matters is having the will to let go of what is not working for you so you can step off the treadmill of repeating the past. This book will help you identify the obstacles that hold you back. Only then can you free yourself and create the space to thrive and grow. Some of the topics offered are:

  • Learn the four levels of deep listening to enhance intuition;
  • Express creativity through sensing, not thinking;
  • Aligning oneself with one’s life’s purpose;
  • Achieve “presence” and “stillness,” the essential portals to higher creativity;
  • Learn to utilize your thoughts, but only when needed.
