Tomás Saraceno: Cloud Cities: du sol au soleil: Palace of Versailles, France
The artist’s new aerial structure, both cloud and spider’s web, unveils perspectives that are otherwise inaccessible to humankind. In his work, he suspends mirrors in the air, like new images and potential reflections on our environment. In complete contrast to the constant struggle in which Louis XIV engaged against the elements, attempting to suppress any kind of organic growth, Saraceno wonders: how can we rediscover the world and regenerate our relationship with nature from a pacified, complementary standpoint? This creation of new perspectives on the King’s Garden Grove also allows the visitor to perceive the necessity for a profound overhaul of our modes of representation through the development of vital environmental awareness.
