Marie Antoinette’s Salon Doré, one of the four main rooms of her “Petits Appartements” in Versailles. These small rooms with their concealed doors escaped the surveillance of spies and favoured love affairs and intrigues. To step through the looking-glass, just as Marie Antoinette used to do, is an extraordinary experience. The four main rooms, the Méridienne, the two libraries, the Salon Doré, their boudoirs and their bathrooms provide a perfect image of eighteenth-century France as we imagine it today (extract from The Private Realm of Marie Antoinette by Marie-France Boyer & François Halard)
Richard Mique the premier architecte to Louis XVI and a favourite of the queen’s was given the task of transforming these rooms for her use while the Rousseau brothers, Jules Antoine and Jean Siméon, did the decorative work on the panelling.
The Salon Doré was both the most grand and the most public room in the suite; Neoclassic in style with “Pompeian” motifs and playful cherubs.
Here is my piece for the second half of Light Grey Art Lab’s Tarot and Occult show coming in October. For my occult/mystic piece I was searching through various methods of predicting the future and came about Augury. Augurs would observe birds (their songs, flight patterns, and the presence of species) to determine decisions regarding commerce, war, politics and religion. They would also observe other natural phenomena such as lightening and sightings of animals linked to gods (owl->Minerva). When I saw birds were involved, I of course jumped at this idea. Limited prints will be available through Light Grey in mid to late October, and will only be sold through them! Excited to see that deck too!
This thing left my hand crippled last week, god too many details….
