Let’s Turn Back Time, Let’s Start This Day Again is an immense aluminum-cast sculpture of a 2000-year-old olive tree from Naples. By casting the tree in aluminum, Rondinone bars the organic from becoming perishable and denies the inevitable passage of time, while simultaneously capturing 1000s of years of growth.

Ugo Rondinone is a multimedia artist known predominantly for his circular aerosol paintings, his video environments, his installations and his sculptures through which he explores themes of imagination, desire and of alienation.
