Since 2007 the Grand Palais (see previous posts)…
…. organizes some special “Monumenta” exhibitions, using the full space under the fabulous glass nave. The fifth event, this year, features Daniel Buren, maybe especially known for the Columns at the Palais Royal (see previous posts).
Previous artists who have been invited include Anselm Kiefer, Richard Serra, Christian Boltanski…
… and Anish Kappor (see my post last year).
Some of the pains of glass in the nave had become blue for the event and even the French flag had been replaced.
This is what you can see, until June 21, when you enter.
The view from the top of the stairs allows a general impression.
The transparent circles enable to see the nave in different colours.
The colours are reflected on the floor.
Some people took pleasure in the large coloured space.
Mirrors on the middle of the floor offered a confusing game of what is up and down.
There was some space for refreshments and for buying of documentation.
I normally don’t make any restaurant promotion on my blog, but I must admit that there is a nice place for brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks… at the Palais ((MINIPALAIS), to be enjoyed indoors or outdoors under the arcades.
On my way I discovered a little flower… (Pont Alexandre III (see previous post) in the background).
