CultureSecrets and the Louis Vuitton City Guide offer you a trip around the world in Paris over the course of the seasons, a discovery of arts and cultures through museums and major institutions. Today, let's go to Lisbon! Immerse yourself in the incredible work of Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos in the sumptuous setting of the Château de Vincennes! "Tree of Life": a monumental installation event, set up as part of the France-Portugal 2022 Season, to discover with this guided tour.
Joana Vasconcelos was born in 1971 and is a visual artist renowned for her monumental installations. She is probably one of the most important artists of her generation, and the youngest to have exhibited at the Château de Versailles. She is also the first Portuguese artist to be exhibited at the Guggenheim Bilbao in a major retrospective. It was one of the most attended exhibitions in the museum's history. After breaking the record for the number of visitors to the Château de Versailles with over 1.6 million visitors, she chose to install her "Tree of Life" at the Château de Vincennes. A monumental work, representing a laurel 13 meters high, composed of more than 100 000 leaves all woven by hand. A titanic work that aims to sublimate this Gothic monument built in 1552.
This installation also echoes the mythological figure of Daphne turning into a tree to escape Apo
