Exhibition "Voyage d'hiver" - Winter journey

Cultural ,  Exhibition ,  Contemporary art at Versailles

  • For its 10th contemporary art exhibition, the Palace of Versailles presents “Voyage d'hiver”, a unique itinerary through the groves until 7 January 2018, curated by the Palais de Tokyo.

    From the end of October, as the Musical Fountains Shows and the Musical Gardens draw to a close, “Voyage d'hiver” will reveal the groves in the Gardens in a new light, revisited in multiple ways by contemporary artists, from the glory of autumn to the stunning freeze-over of winter. The Palais de Tokyo has been invited to design “Voyage d'hiver” with Alfred Pacquement, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Palace of Versailles.

    Four historic fountains, each representing a different season, legitimize the important theme of a changing world. During three months “Voyage d'hiver” accompanies those transformations, casting a meditative trail through the gardens which slowly slip into the cold and the frost.

    Metamorphosing a stroll into a personal experience, allowing visitors to perceive nature’s transformation, sixteen artists bring their vision, their sensibility and their poetry. From different countries, genres, and generations, firmly established or up-and-coming, they create together an oneiric trail through the paths and the grooves.

    As a link between the art works, the French novelist Céline Minard wrote a text, which reminds of Franz Schubert’s 'lieder'.
