On the occasion of « Voyage d’hiver », Versailles opens its gardens to seventeen artists who are to create a poetic walk through its groves. The path was imagined as a stroll in that open-air museum, starting when October is burnishing the vegetation and ending in the pale brightness of the winter. It will be punctuated by seventeen sights, seventeen works which dialog with the creation of André Le Nôtre.
For its 10th edition, the contemporary art exhibition has been made together with the Palais de Tokyo. The curatorship, composed of Jean de Loisy, Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, Yoann Gourmel and Alfred Pacquement, invites the visitors to this journey from the 22nd of October to the 7th of January.
Sculpture, sound installation, painting, drapery, reflection, oxidization, and glaciations are just a few of the techniques the artists use, proposing a new lecture of Louis XIV’s gardens.
