Bernar Venet

Chateau de Versailles, Versailles

The artist invests the gardens of the Chateau

sintesi del comunicato stampa

At Versailles, Bernar Venet invests the gardens of the Chateau, a classical space that is highly geometric and governed by the rules of perspective. The artist is fully aware of the symbolic significance of the site and approaches it with a desire to underscore its formal lines, capture its coherence, and cast a new light on these spaces, while occasionally positioning himself in opposition to its precisely delimited layout. He does so by installing, for instance, a collapsed arc that resembles a wreck - not lacking in form, yet deliberately anti-formal - between the Bassin d'Apollon and the Grand Canal, enthroned at the core of the architectural gem par excellence that is Versailles. Curated by Bernard Marcade'.
