Permanent public installation
18 March 2022 - Official opening
Bosco della Memoria, Parco della Trucca, Bergamo, Italy
Located in the Bosco della Memoria (Wood of Memory) created in Trucca Park in memory of the victims of Covid-19, lndistinti confini (Indistinct Boundaries) is the new permanent installation by Giuseppe Penone, donated to the City of Bergamo by the Giulio and Giovanna Sacchetti Foundation. Conceived as a place of reflection and memory, the work is part of the artist's poetics, which breaks down the boundaries between the human, mineral and plant worlds. In a series of cross-references and analogies between the white and veined Carrara marble and the bark and branches of the Himalayan birch trees that make up the installation, Penone with Indistinct Boundaries shows "the flow of matter and life that flows indistinctly through the body of the world".
