Dahlings, as it the poor Parisians haven’t suffered enough for the art, someone decides to place a sculpture of Marie Antoniette’s hooty hoo (source Daily Mail) in the middle of Versailles Palace.
Not surprisingly, some locals are not impressed.
The British artist, Anish Kapoors, appartently said that his giant, 60-metre long rusty metal funnel represents ‘a queen’s vagina’ taking power.
It is thought that he is referring to Marie Antoinette – the wife of Louis XVI famed for telling starving peasants in France ‘Let them eat cake.’
Kapoor admits his work is provocative and praised the head of the Palace of Versailles as being ‘brave and generous’ to display his work.
Last christmas, I wrote that Paris had another public naughty exhibit of “Tree” which resembled an inflatable butt plug. That lasted all of one night until someone punctured it. This time, I can’t see how someone could vandalize this one.
This will make some interesting explaining to the kids.
Ciao for now,
Dahlings, well that didn’t last long.
I refer to the contemporary art piece of work called “Tree” that looked like a thingy – see our previous post.
It turns out some Parisians who were upset that it ‘humiliated the city’, vandalized the so called piece of Art at night. [Source Daily Mail].
The same artist had a previous exhibit that was a tad bit controversial:
At a 2011 exhibition in London he displayed an identical pair of clay anamatronic sculptures of former president George W Bush having sex with pigs.
Oh, I just can’t wait for his next inspiration.
Ciao for now, Cleo.
Dahlings, French maybe the language of love butt those Frenchies are ‘ow do I say it, sex maniacs.
In the Place Vendome in Paris, US artist Paul McCarthy has put up a 24ft inflatable green Christmas tree. It is simply titled “Tree”.
Except it looks like a thingy.
You know a thingy that you insert in your uhm.. Let me start again, it is a thingy you use to expand your uhm horizons.
Oh sacre bleu. I ave’ad enough of zis: I’m not going to give this a free plug.
Ciao for now, Cleo.
