Szczesny’s monumental sculpture “Tree of Life” was shown, this year, in the framework of an exhibition of sculptures and ceramics in the beautiful gardens of Villa Domergue, Cannes.
The Tree of Life was originally designed for Stefan Szczesny’s 2014 retrospective Métamorphoses méditerranéennes at the Palais des Papes in Avignon. Through various botanic elements and female figures attached to an abstract tree sculpture, Stefan Szczesny engages with his signature themes of vitality and joie de vivre.
The Tree of Life was funded by Cosmo Art and Science Foundation, which is also the owner of the sculpture. The foundation has kindly agreed to loan the sculpture for the exhibition in Cannes.
