“The intense and silent works of this artist will be placed in the palace and in the gardens, at the foot of the Gabriel stairs, in the great perspective designed by Le Nôtre and around the corner of walks or in the mysterious groves, completing and modifying the atmosphere for a time.

In Versailles, the artist will install ten works, all entirely new, some of them of unusual size to correspond to the spaces in the gardens. Behind their very restricted formal vocabulary, true diversity will emerge; some configurations will be completely new to his work. This exhibition will create a major landmark in Lee Ufan’s sculptural work with its confrontation to the exceptional site.”
