Ends in 9 days

The Bernard Buffet Museum is surrounded by trees and has hosted various tree themed exhibitions in the past, such as “The Story of Trees” in 2013. In addressing this topic, the relationship between trees and people is explored, and the life of the forest grows. In this exhibition you can see the work of three artists who express the form that the life of trees, and our living together with trees, takes. These works will encourage you to contemplate how you live.
