Artwork Description:

Asbjorn Lonvig's words: You have to see the term Shadow in both a figurative sence and in a non-figurative sence. Wikipedia's words: The Palace of Versailles, or in French: le Chteau de Versailles, which has been on UNESCOs World Heritage List for 30 years, is one of the most beautiful achievements of 18th-century French art. The site began as Louis XIIIs hunting lodge before his son Louis XIV transformed and expanded it, moving the court and government of France to Versailles in 1682. Each of the three French kings who lived there until the French Revolution added improvements to make it more beautiful. The Hall of Mirrors, the Kings Grand Apartments, the Museum of the History of France. The Chteau de Versailles, the seat of power until 1789, has continued to unfurl its splendour over the course of centuries. At first it was just a humble hunting lodge built by Louis XIII. But Louis XIV chose the site to build the palace we know today, the symbol of royal absolutism and embodiment of classical French art. In the 1670s Louis XIV built the Grand Apartments of the King and Queen, whose most emblematic achievement is the Hall of Mirrors designed by Mansart, where the king put on his most ostentatious display of royal power in order to impress visitors. The Chapel and Opera were built in the next century under Louis XV. On the one hand I am inspired. Inspired by all this extravagance. On the other hand I despite it. In the two ponds at Parterre l'Eau I can see the shadow of the Palace. The shadow of extravagance. Extravagance is no way beautifull - the shadow of extravagance is.
