Versailles has a spectacular new installation

Olafur Eliasson gives a new installation in Versailles

Versailles has become a creative space for reknown artists like Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami and Anish Kapoor, giving them the space to showcase their amazing works around the palace and gardens every year since 2008.

This year, the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson took over the place and created astounding installations that exposed the importance of water and mirrors in the historical court. Olafur’s idea was to interact with the viewers and take them to that unique experience through his artworks.

One of our favorite pieces is The Waterfall. This spectacular and massive installation is located in the basin of the Grand Canal near the end of the gardens. The Waterfall is supported by a tower that pumps water through the pipes and crashes back into the basin to simulate this natural wonder. This installation was inspired on one of the landscape architects, André Le Nôtre’s dream, where he imagined a waterfall tumbling onto the Grand Canal.
