Future resident Paul Ardenne curates a show in Paris, about art and the tree

Ackroyd & Harvey – Beuys acorns – 2009. Fantastic work. In “Dendromorphies”. Show curated by our next spring resident and author Paul Ardenne – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Ardenne -. On view until January 11th at Espace Topographie de l’Art, Paris. British artists Ackroyd & Harvey gather and replant acorns of famous Joseph Beuys’s 7000 oaks planted in Kassel, Germany, during the famous international exhibition Documenta 7, 1982 and following years, some of them in Chelsea, New York City. Joseph Beuys had joined at that time the Ecological Green Party in Germany and decided to make a huge performance based on planting trees in cities. Now Ackroyd & Harvey give a perpetual life to this initiative.
