Anish Kapoor At The Chateau de Versailles

Now here is a 'mission statement  of note.  Contemporary British artist Anish Kapoor, renowned for his stunning modern installation art, has collaborated with the Chateau de Versailles to install several pieces on the grounds of the Chateau.  Kapoor shares a birth date with Andre LeNotre the great designer of Versailles classic park and gardens.  Kapoor set out not just to place objects around the grounds but to "upset the balance, create chaos and have a modern day dialogue with Andre LeNotre.

Versailles has partnered with noted contemporary artists like Jeff Koons in previous summers.  This Kapoor installation is one that is well worth the trip from Paris on its own merits... then you have that magnificent chateau to explore too.  Through November 1, 2015.
