Back to the Trees

Back to the Trees is a singular artistic event, inviting artists of all kinds to focus their creative energies on trees and the forest. At nightfall, the time of day when the senses are particularly receptive, Back to the Trees consists of an unusual stroll to the heart of the forest, whose magic is revealed little by little as the promenade progresses. Musicians, visual artists, photographers, video artists, performers, dancers, poets, storytellers, woodcutters, biologists, architects, landscape artists, philosophers, and spiritual healers all come to share their interpretation and their poetic vision of the forest. A complex space, the forest represents many different things: it is the cradle of humanity, the setting for solitary or family walks, a refuge for resistance movements, or a culturally forbidden territory. After six events in France and Switzerland from 2011 on – showing 150 works by artists of 20 nationalities to an audience of 4,500 visitors – Back to the Trees is expanding like a plant, multiplying offshoots from its roots which are becoming new, independent plants. It gives birth in 2018 to several “clone” events which will take place in several forests of the world on the same philosophical bases as those of the founding event. All in all, a fitting development for an artistic ecosystem of this nature, which synthesizes form and content.
