Murakami Versailles, The Book

  • Pin it

Remember when I told you I loved different perspectives of the same thing? Changing the common way we’re used to look around us is something privileged and I for one, I’m absolutely loving it!

When I heard that the palais of Versailles was invaded by Takashi Murakami’s work, I frowned. I though it was a bit too much. Now I know I was wrong (and I’m happy to admit that Murakami changed my perspective over Versailles and all things Murakami). The catalogue of the Murakami Versailles exposition is already sold out chez Colette. Photographed by Cedric Delsaux and published with the Editions Xavier Barral, the books is surprising, funny and would make a great coffee book for art professionals and amateurs alike.

If you’re a fan already, you may get lucky with another similar book: Jeff Koons Versailles. Pop art is getting to me! Do you think this kind of installations brings new fans for the pop art artists? (you can see two images from the Jeff Koons Versailles book right after the jump – the last two; more about Jeff Koons Versailles here; photos via 1, 2)
