Dernières photos de l'expo Anish Kapoor

Kapoor Versailles Sectional Body preparing for monadic singularity
The controversial Anish Kapoor exhibition in the palace gardens is drawing to an end, should you want to see it, hurry up, it ends on 1 November. VDP had already shown you several works (see them here, here and there) but had yet to show you the two last ones. This red cube, which is located in the star grove, is called 'Sectional body preparing for monadic singularity'. Should you understand what that means, please let VDP know. She did, however, like the inside of it which she thought was rather photogenic!

L'exposition controversée Anish Kapoor dans les jardins du château se termine le 1er novembre. VDP vous avait déjà montré plusieurs œuvres (ici, ici et ), il en restait encore deux autres à voir. Ce cube rouge, intitulé "Sectional body preparing for monadic singularity", se trouve dans le bosquet de l'étoile. A défaut d'en saisir toute la signification, VDP a bien aimé l'intérieur, qu'elle a trouvé très photogénique.

The last exhibit is called 'Descension', a vortex of hypnotic rushing water, very difficult to photograph!

La dernière oeuvre s'intitule "Descension", un vortex d'eau hypnotique, difficile à prendre en photo !

While VDP did not like the gigantic 'Dirty Corner', also dubbed 'the queen's vagina', she cannot understand why it would have been vandalised a second time... The gold paint was added to hide the tags...

Quoique VDP n'ait pas aimé le gigantesque "Dirty Corner", surnommé "le vagin de la reine", elle ne comprend pas comment il est possible de vandaliser à deux reprises cet objet... La peinture dorée a été ajoutée pour cacher les tags...

I'm afraid I have no idea what it means but I do like the interior, and I like your first picture very much. The vortex I expect is quite visual in real life but dirty corner, I'm being polite, completely baffles me. Hope you're feeling better....

Love the picture with the kids. They get it! :-)

Well, it photographs nicely, and the vortex is pretty good, too. No, I didn't care for "dirty corner," but defiling it is unacceptable. People need to learn to tolerate things they don't particularly like, since, after all, what we might like, someone else will hate, and what we might hate, someone else will like.

The art work in your photos is striking. The first two are visually powerful, but I'm not sure what to think of "Dirty Corner". But the vandalism is just wrong. If someone doesn't like a work they should just move on, and not destroy it.

je n'aime pas les oeuvres de cet "artiste" mais je ne vandaliserai pas non plus, le château choisit comme emplacement de ce "truc" n'était pas non plus du meilleur goût, à force de vouloir provoquer il faut bien s'attendre à des mauvaises réactions

@ Josette : donc si je suis ton raisonnement, si tu me provoques, je te blesse ?

Great shots, as for the vandalism... not good.

I love the red cube and your photos are stunning. The vortex is kind of scary to me. I think I have some deep seated fear of being sucked into a whirlpool like that. Regardless of one's opinion of the art work, that vandalism is totally unacceptable.

Nice things, funny and spectacular...

The artistic mind is sometimes difficult to fathom Ciel :) but you are right and have captured the essence of the 'whatever it is' :) I detest when vandals deface an artists work, so rude!

Wayne said...

I would love the experiment with the vortex using a tripod and long shutter speeds. It's sad that people feel the need to vandalize something just because they do not agree with it, go elsewhere or don't look at it. The red cube is freaky cool.

William Kendall said...

Both the cube and the vortex are fascinating from the photographer's perspective!

Loree said...

I do like the interior very much but I find some types of modern art so difficult to comprehend.

RedPat said...

I like the red cube but the others leave me a bit cold! Hate the vandalism!

Michelle said...

I like all of the art, but why must people vandalize? Tiresome.....

Bergson said...

je suis toujours surpris qu'on parle autant de trucs comme ça c'est donné bien d'importante à "un artiste"

Kate said...

Unusual, very visa and very modern.

EG CameraGirl said...

I fail to understand why vandals feel their tagging is more acceptable than the art they are defiling!
