Vuslat Foundation in close collaboration with Chus Martínez presents The Listener, a monumental installation by leading Italian artist Giuseppe Penone at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, running 22 May to 21 November 2021. Penone’s nine-metre-high sculpture in the form of a tree is a new edition of artist’s widely celebrated series of works "Idee di Pietra - Olmo" (Ideas of Stone - Elm). The work is submerged in the Venetian Lagoon at the Gaggiandre in the Arsenale.
