Veilhan at Versailles / Interview with Xavier Veilhan

September 11, 2009

Last year, American artist Jeff Koons presented his works at the Chateau de Versailles near Paris, France. This year, French artist Xavier Veilhan shows his works in the Gardens, Royal Court, and apartments of the Versailles Palace. Xavier Veilhan: “My project for Versailles mainly addresses the outdoor realm, following an east/west axis across the estate, from the Place d’Armes to Le Nôtre’s formal gardens. I will be placing several works or groups of works conceived especially for this exhibition, which will articulate the continuity that joins the site’s history to its contemporary protraction. This is a project that is dynamic, classical, open and universal, aiming to establish a new bond between visitors to the place and the spaces they come into contact with.”

Xavier Veilhan was born in Lyon in 1963. He lives and works in Paris. Xavier Veilhan works in a variety of media such as photography, sculpture, film, painting and installation art. The exhibition Veilhan at the Versailles Palace runs until December 13, 2009. Interview and video by Christophe Ecoffet.

    [...] ● 繼去年美國人Jeff Koon在凡爾賽宮廣場誇張又俗豔的成功展出後,今年輪到法國自己的藝術家Xavier Veilhan。在戶外公開展出的作品中,最讓我印象深刻的應該是The Naked Woman和The Architects雕像系列。那個有著古典曲線、發著銀光高高站立在筆直立台上的女人,將凡爾賽宮的空間重新整頓,流露了出一種不可動搖、高雅凜然的氣息;而建築大師系列,則是利用精密的數位掃瞄技術,讓一個個現代建築的巨匠散佈在風景之中,其中大家最熟悉的安藤忠雄,擺出的還是他少年時的拳擊手姿態。整個展出到12月13日,這裡有Veilhan自己說明作品的影片。 [...]
