Omnipresent and essential to life, trees have been underestimated by biologists. But in recent years, they
have been the subject of scienti c discoveries that have allowed us to see these oldest and largest members of
the community of living beings in a new light. Capable of sensory perception, showing complex communication skills, living in symbiosis with many other species and in uencing the climate, trees are equipped with unexpected faculties whose discovery con rms what indigenous, traditional and local communities had long acknowledged.

Featuring works by contemporary artists including forest people, scienti c imagery, lms, photographs and sound installations, the exhibition at the Fondation Cartier

pour l’art contemporain, Paris, strives to highlight the beauty, ingenuity and biological richness of trees. Through paintings, drawings, photographs and texts by specialists, the catalogue published to accompany the exhibition invites the reader to dive into the fascinating and beautiful world of trees.
