La Vie Secrète Des Plantes ( The Secret Life of Plants)

6 July–5 November 2017

Exhibition Overview

La vie secrète des plantes

As part of the 40th anniversary celebrations for the Pompidou Centre, Lambert Collection is hosting one of the most iconic works by Anselm Kiefer, a major figure on the international art scene and the Lambert Collection.

In 2003, thanks to the generosity of Yvon Lambert, The Secret life of Plants, a monumental installation of 10 paintings on frames over which intermingle paint, branches, wire and lead sheeting, became part of the Pompidou Centre’s national collections, so it was only natural for the Lambert Collection to become involved with this project by exhibiting the monumental work of this great German artist.

Through the sensitive dialogue initiated between the works of Anselm Kiefer, Wolfgang Laib, Joseph Beuys and Lothar Baumgarten, The Secret life of Plants alternately summons up history, ancient myths and the philosophies of the stars, and in a cosmogony that pays homage to the power of nature, the poetic relationship between the microcosm and the macrocosm unveils room by room, the secrets of a universe where magical and essential interactions between the earthly world and that of the stars unfolds.
