Versailles-ArtXavier-Veilhan-

Le Chateau de Versailles is a well-known palace of the french aristocracy. This is where Marie Antoinette ate cakes, and where she lost her head. Thus, it is an iconic place of the classic architecture and the visible explanation that, in the old times, aristochrats were rich and had nice houses.

This is why is quite surprising that modern art can be found across its doors. Therefore, a giant Jeff Koons balloon sculpture it’s visible in a courtyard or a Joana Vasconcelos crotched installation has been installed in the stairs.

I do think that this is jutxtaposition is quite interesting, what about you?
