Destroy Me Once, Destroy Me Twice
Katharina Grosse has been commissioned to create a 2,000-square-meter dance floor for the 2022 Roskilde Festival in Denmark, to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the festival, which runs from June 25 to July 2. Titled Destroy Me Once, Destroy Me Twice (2022), the expansive outdoor painting transforms the hilly landscape of the festival’s campsite and is intended to inspire a sense of community, presence, and togetherness in keeping with this year’s theme, “Solidarity–Time to Act!” Since 1971, Roskilde Festival, the largest of its kind in Northern Europe, has been a melting pot that merges music and art. To attend the festival, purchase tickets at www.roskilde-festival.dk.

Giuseppe Penone À La Tourette
Le Couvent Sainte-Marie de La Tourette, in Éveux, France, is both an active Dominican priory and the last building designed by Le Corbusier. As a result, the priory, completed in 1961, is a center both religious and architectural, a site of spiritual significance and a magnetic draw for artists, writers, architects, and others. This fall, at the invitation of Frère Marc Chauveau, Giuseppe Penone will be exhibiting a selection of existing sculptures at La Tourette alongside new work directly inspired by the context and materials of the building. Here, Penone and Frère Chauveau discuss the power and peculiarities of the space, as well as the artwork that will be exhibited there.
