Expo Bernar Venet au château


So... here are two full views of what I was showing you here in a hurry. The top photo is in the palace gardens, the bottom one in front of the palace. Art by Bernar Venet on exhibition until 1 November 11.

Voici de jour ce que je vous montrais rapidement le soir ici. En haut, côté jardin, en bas côté Place d'Armes. Expo Bernar Venet jusqu'au 1/11/11.

This certainly gives a different view of the chateau...and I'm sure these sculptures have some meaning but it escapes me for the moment! :-)

What a spectacular backdrop for his sculptures Ciel, and I love the way you've framed the palace in the second photo. Gorgeous!

I love public art, of most kinds, but it will take a while for me to warm to these . . .

Woody said...

That's really cool, I love sculpture like this and what a setting for an exhibition!

The bottom shot looks like the rib cage of a brontosaurus. Yes, it's true. I spent way too much time watching Fred Flintstone, first as a child, then as an adult, passing it along to my children :-)

These are awesome!

Bob Crowe said...

OMG, we got some of those! I'll take pictures when we're in town and maybe have a comparison post when I get home. Venet is awfully abstract, though, all that math.

Leif Hagen said...

Very fun and cool sculptures! Like the contrast of the pyramids in front of the Louvre!

They look more like giant metal flanges, not sculptures, to me.

I love there. I would like one out in the pasture. MB

Entre Buren au palais royal et lui a Versailles.. ces modernes nous empechent de savourer l'art classique, et leur "art" ne vaut que par ce qu'il y a derrière.
En plus , il enlève le d de son prenom pour faire genre, rien que ça en dit long sur le personnage...

Thérèse said...

D'intéressants mélanges et un espace qui se prête à la grandeur de ces "sculptures." Heureusement les expos se suivent et ne se ressemblent pas (:-)))

*Honest Abe said...

Wow. I will say they are very big. I wonder how he made them round?

brattcat said...

Love the way you've composed that last shot so that the palace is cupped in the palm of the art.

Kaori said...

I hope it doesn't roll over when someone leans on it! Very cool view under the gorgeous blue sky!

Happy friday :D

Wonderfully captured, I like this art.

Birdman said...

I bet this is a refreshing take on an old building.

BaysideLife said...

Mmm. I don't understand them, but they are interesting. The last looks to be defying gravity. Either way, the photos are great.

Photohunter said...

Die Perspektive des zweiten Foto's ist gigantisch, wirklich gut gelungen.
Wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende.

Francisca said...

Well, what a difference a day makes. Very different these shots from when the art was being installed. Interesting to read the different responses to these. I certainly like the way you've framed the shots.

Magpie said...

Very unique...I still think they look like rib bones.

VP said...

I am never able to get the point of these superior minds...

veredit said...

grandiose Bilder, die diese fantastischen Kunstwerke in perfekter Weise einbinden in die historische Umgebung ... alles verschmelzen zu einem harmonischen und sehr inspirativem Ganzen!

ein wunderschönes Wochenende für dich mit lieben Grüßen

I was waiting for these! :-) How very cool. The composition at the bottom is fantastic, Ciel!

Lynette said...

Magnificent! Thanks for these two photos and the link--I enjoyed the fall of the steel beams.

You mentioned you were due for rain--that's great. The only time I was in Versailles (on a student trip to Europe) it rained on us as we walked back towards the train. I had a backpack and an umbrella. The water dripped from the umbrella onto the zipper of a pocket on the umbrella, but not one thing was ruined. So I have nothing but great memories of visiting the palace.

Quelles jolies parenthèses ;)

These are wonderful, Ciel. I think this art complements the buildings so well.
