At Versailles, a Portuguese artist Hoany Vasconcelos opened an exhibition, the first woman honored to present her work in the walls of the famous Palace “Sun King.” Among the exhibitors male in past years featured such authors like Jeff Koons, Xavier Waylan, Takashi Murakami and Bernard Vienna.
Development of architecture and design in our time has reached incredible heights … so the following installation presented by the artist may surprise everyone, in every sense of the word.
In the heart of creativity of Vasconcelos lies conversion of everyday objects in unexpected ways. The artist is deeply tied to Portuguese culture, using traditional techniques, for example, Portuguese azulejos tile and lace. There is much humor in her works, and sometimes sad, and especially a lot of them warm feminine.
According to Vasconcelos, Versailles cannot be called an exhibition hall for art works, it is the art itself. In addition, even if some people think that there is nothing you cannot add to the completed masterpiece, the artist considers this palace an ideal place for bold experimentation and free expression, because it is a place where artists feel at home.
Vasconcelos’s world is an opera, and chambers of Versailles perfectly illustrate this idea. For her the beauty of this palace has no time, she feels a connection with those who have lived here, feels the energy of this place and enters their work in this space. The artist hopes that she managed to capture the spirit of modern facilities and Versailles, however, to stay what it is itself, to keep its purity.
