Contemporary art exhibition

From 17 June to 2 November 2014,the Palace of Versailles welcomes the Korean artist Lee Ufan for a major contemporary art exhibition in the gardens.

Relatum - The Shadow of the Stars

"The intense and silent works of this artist will be placed in the palace and in the gardens, at the foot of the Gabriel stairs, in the great perspective designed by Le Nôtre and around the corner of walks or in the mysterious groves, completing and modifying the atmosphere for a time.

In Versailles, the artist will install ten works, all entirely new, some of them of unusual size to correspond to the spaces in the gardens. Behind their very restricted formal vocabulary, true diversity will emerge; some configurations will be completely new to his work. This exhibition will create a major landmark in Lee Ufan’s sculptural work with its confrontation to the exceptional site."

Alfred Pacquement
Curator of the Lee Ufan Versailles exhibition

Relatum - Dialogue Z

The itinerary

Most of the works of the Lee Ufan Versailles exhibition are installed along the Grand Perspective, on the South Parterre and in the groves and walkways of the gardens. The work Relatum - Cotton Wall is installed at the foot of the Gabriel stairs.
