Luiz Zerbini: 'Trees' at Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris, France

Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris, France
A solo focus on Brazilian artist Luiz Zerbini forms part of Trees, a group exhibition at Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris, France. Bringing together artists with scientists, botanists and philosophers, the exhibition is a holistic investigation of humans' relationship with trees. Exploring the subject in light of recent scientific discoveries, the exhibition displays the beauty and biological wealth of trees alongside the threats of climate change and deforestation.

The exhibition includes work in a wide variety of media by artists from Latin America, Europe, the United States, Iran, as well as from indigenous communities such as the Nivaclé and Guaraní from Gran Chaco, Paraguay and the Yanomami Indians, who live in the heart of the Amazonian rainforest. The garden of Fondation Cartier forms a natural extension of the exhibition, where visitors can stroll through the trees that inspired Jean Nouvel to design the building's architecture in 1994.

The exhibition was organised with anthropologist Bruce Albert, who has collaborated with Fondation Cartier on exhibitions exploring related themes since Yanomami, Spirit of the Forest (2003).
