The Palace de Versailles is now being taken over by large contemporary sculptures created by Lisbon-based artist Joana Vaconcelos.
These art installations are all a part of the Château contemporary art exhibition that takes place every year. From giant high heels to enormous tea pots, Vaconcelos super-sized these sculptures that flourish in the palace’s garden, grand halls and fancy state apartments. The work juxtaposes with the Palace de Versailles, but also ties in nicely as the sculptures themselves are ultra-modern and grand.
The rather large, feathered helicopters and pink and purple creatures give off a touch of femininity while the overly lavish rooms enhance the art with its own style and opulent flare. The art exhibition will run from June 18 to September 30.
