Absolute Monarchy

This Palace of Versailles Hall of Mirrors installation, by Elizabeth Corkery, is pretty spectacular. The entire ‘Absolute Monarchy’ room (49ft x 19ft) was screenprinted on 220 masonite panels and incorporates plastic mirror clips and adhesive mirror vinyl. The perspective on the real room makes it look infinitely long and Elizabeth has been able to create fantastic depth in her modern depiction of one of the world’s most opulent and famous rooms.

    Um, wow. We’re seeing the real Versailles later this year… I hope I’m not disappointed. :) I just wrote a post on the aesthetic of Coppola’s film… it must be the season for all things Antoinette.
