Jungles in Paris features paintings, collages and charcoal drawings by Romanian painter Adrian Ghenie (born 1977). The title is drawn from Henri Rousseau's exhibition at Tate Modern in 2005-6. The tension created by the juxtaposition of urban Paris and the exotic, wild, untethered jungle is the foundation for Ghenie's body of work. The catalog opens with a poem by the Romanian surrealist Ghérasim Luca.
