From July 12th, 2019, the Cartier Foundation opens its door to present you Nous les Arbres exhibition, extended till January 5th, 2020.
Nous les Arbres raise awareness of trees life, their communication skills, their memory or their pollution reaction, as many points showing their vegetal intelligence.
This exhibition gathers artists, botanists, philosophers in order to share their last scientific researches about these plants.
We discover drawings, paints photos, movies and artist facilities, from Latin America, Europa, United States, Iran, but also from indigenous and indian communities from the amazon forest.
The exhibition takes place in 3 stages: trees knowledge, their aesthetic and their devastation.
The anthropologist Bruce Albert, director of the IRD (Research Institute for the Development), has been called by the Cartier Foundation to participate to this exhibition.
