An homage to trees at the Fondation Cartier

An homage to trees at the Fondation Cartier

, ,

Based in the 14th arrondissement of Paris since 1994, the Fondation Cartier puts on major exhibitions. The exhibition Trees is a reflection of its magnificent building and its 4,500 m2 park. In fact, the aerial building made of glass and metal, designed by architect Jean Nouvel, exists in symbiosis with the natural elements of the park, a little gem commissioned from artist Lothar Baumgarten. Depending on the quantity of sunshine, the monument acts as a veritable mirror, becoming the sky and the clouds. The relationship between humans and nature is established. And the Trees exhibition is an extension thereof. It presents the perspectives of many artists, philosophers and botanists on recent scientific research which has demonstrated the intelligence of trees and the complex ties between humankind and nature. 1,200 m2 of exhibition spread over six storeys show installations, paintings, films, photographs and drawings by a multitude of contemporary artists. For example, Fabrice Hyber and his organic pieces, Luiz Zerbini with his mathematical compositions of colourful tropical landscapes where the traces of humankind are never far away… and many more, which I will leave you to discover between now and 10 November 2019.
