Wood has been a close companion of man since the beginning, in all cultures, nomadic or sedentary, and from the North to the South Pole. Our idea of wood may have changed over time, but since time immemorial we have lived in symbiosis with wood and continuously developed its possibilities for our purposes.

This exhibition explores how man has used wood, what wood can do and how we perceive it. Boisbuchet's own history, as the name suggests, is also based on wood. Today, this place is in many ways an arboretum : a living collection of different woods and thus of ways to shape the world.
