While the 10 first contemporary art exhibitions have been held in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles, Hiroshi Sugimoto chose to present his works in the Trianon Estate, a place dedicate to the intimacy of memories.
The artist is an eclectic choice for the Versailles estate. As a matter of fact, Hiroshi Sugimoto is a multiple artist, first a black and white still life photographer, as well as a sculptor that questions mathematical patterns.
He explains: “My art career started with photography, a two-dimension work. After years exhibiting my photographs in galleries with spaces difficult to use, I’ve decided to become an architect to create tridimensional spaces useful to artists. Then, I’ve been interested in performing arts adding a fourth dimension, time. Far from going towards to harmony, like we could reasonably expect it, my art career seems to go towards disorder”.
We can’t wait to discover Sugimoto’s Trianon!
