Murakami at Versailles
isbn 9782915173727Â Â Â ED. XAVIER BARRAL
Following the international success of the exhibition â€˜Jeff Koons Versaillesâ€™ in 2008, and the remarkable creation of site -specific works by Xavier Veilhan in 2009, now Takashi Murakami has been invited to present his works at Versailles. By creating new works for this occasion, his first retrospective in a French institution, and adding them to existing ones from his repertoire, he is perpetuating Versaillesâ€™ long tradition of creativity. These manga-inspired sculptures are perfectly matched with the rooms and gardens of Louis XIV and Marie Antoinetteâ€™s ornate palace.
