Versailles School of Architecture Retrospective


Out of all the exuberance on display at the Versailles School of Architecture Retrospective I have paid attention to two pieces: The bust in black ceramic riddled with negative spaces by Christian Gozenbach, and the treasure map with its meandering beads by Emmanuelle Villard; the former could serve me as a negative reference to a marble or white ceramic portrait, while the latter might retrace the paths to the hidden jewel at the Little Trianon. In the context of Versailles nothing else seems meaningful.
