Bernar Venet is the new contemporary artist invited by Le Château de Versailles near Paris for 2011. Bernar Venet is a 70 years old french minimal artist based in New York but not so famous in Paris. After the controversy with Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami last year, Venet is not creating such a polemic with his “corten” steel rods. Indeed there are 7 sculptures only located in the giant garden and at the entrance of the Château. Here are, in exclusivity, the first pictures of this exhibition starting June 1st.
