‘Prospettiva Vegetale—Giuseppe Penone,’ dir. Francesco Fei, 2014, follows Giuseppe Penone through the realization of his solo exhibition at Forte di Belvedere and the Giardino di Boboli in Florence. Penone’s intense consideration of sculpture, architecture, and landscape ensures a complex operation, one that we are invited to witness throughout the 20 minute documentary. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Paired with Giuseppe Penone is ‘Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawings,’ dir. Edgar B. Howard, 2010, which focuses on LeWitt’s conceptual practice as carried out during his November 2008 retrospective of Wall Drawings at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. LeWitt believed that the idea that generates the work of art is more important than its execution, therefore he utilized other artists and assistants to realize his projects.
