Anish Kapoor moved to Versailles..... Contemporary art invites again in the gardens of Le Nôtre with monumental works by Anish Kapoor visible until November 1.
After Jeff Koons, Xavier Veilhan, Giuseppe Penone or Lee Ufan last year, it was the British artist's turn to invest Versailles with six monumental installations. He who had masterfully occupied the glass roof of the Grand Palais in 2011 with his Leviathan had to deal this time with the area of 800 hectares of gardens. If some works are integrated into the landscape, curved mirrors Sky Mirror and C-Curve reflecting the horizon or Descension and hypnotic swirl, others downright detonate.
