Takashi Murakami is the latest major modern artist to exhibit his work against the baroque backdrop of Château de Versailles since the equally impressive 2008 Jeff Koons’ retrospective. Murakami has 22 works on display including 11 site-specific pieces that experiment with concepts of tying the past to the future. My personal favorite of these new pieces is Murkami’s interpretation of a crazed King Louis XIV. This video is an interesting interview by Christophe Ecoffe of VernissageTV with Murakami about the exhibition and you can see another tour of the exhibition here. Now if I could just find some way to get enough room in my schedule to go see this exhibition since it only runs through December 12th.
