Palace Art Exhibits
Joana Vasconcelos at Versailles Creates Opulently Operatic Sculptures

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Jun 23, 12

The art exhibit by Joana Vasconcelos at Versailles does justice to the sprawling chateau and the extravagant visual feast it already has on the menu. A dessert like no other, the Lisbon-based artist’s sculptures are decisively modern with a touch of eccentric opulence themselves that complements the space they are set in. From feathered golden helicopters to a giant pair of heels made out of pots and pans, the artworks are quirkily stunning.

The sculptures that are part of the exhibit by Joana Vasconcelos at Versailles are scattered in and around the palace. Part of the château’s annual contemporary art exhibition, Vasconcelos writes, “My work has developed around the idea that the world is an opera, and versailles embodies the operatic and aesthetic ideal that inspires me.
the works that I propose exist for this place.”
