versailles sculpture by xavier veilhan

The awesome photographer Todd Selby documented the great French artist’s installation at the Palace of Versailles in 2009. It’s so great when historical sights are the setting for contemporary art, and I think this is a good example of that. My favorite is the purple mobile of spheres against the ornate ceiling. It feels to me like two worlds are crashing into each other, and I love it!
