Hiroshi Sugimoto at the Palace of Versailles
16 Oktober 2018 00:00 - 17 Februar 2019 00:00
During the exhibition time, the Present breathes new life into the Past at Versailles. Hiroshi Sugimoto settles his installations in several spaces in the Estate of Trianon : Petit Trianon, Flat Pool, Belvedere, Queen's Theater, French Pavilion and the Garden Room. The artist presents the shadows of greats personnages who lived or marked the places : from Louis XIV who set up Montespan here to Marie-Antoinette who put the finishing touches to its aesthetic, it is a whole historic facet that Sugimoto reinvents through his installations. His art questions our relationship with photography and time : it is a practise that blends the modernist project with Japanese tradition and takes place in a unique and historical place : the Estate of Trianon.
