Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos in Versailles

(Dress: Filipe Faísca Atelier)


“My work has developed around the idea that the world is an opera, and Versailles embodies the operatic and aesthetic ideal that inspires me… How would the life of Versailles look if this exuberant and grandiose universe was transferred to our period?…” Vasconcelos said.
She is the first woman and youngest to exhibit contemporary art in the French national monument. Invited by the President of the institution, Jean-Jacques Aillagon, and curator Jean-Francois Chougnete, the artist will show 17 works in which 8 these were designed especially for the occasion.
