Xavier Veilhan “Free Fall”


Famous for his installations anchored in urban reality, Veilhan received special recognition in 2009 thanks to an exhibition of his works at the Château de Versailles. Intent on sharing the essence of things, the artist decomposes reality. He is also a thoroughly modern artist who blends ancient aesthetics and new processes (and conversely, new aesthetics and ancient processes) wherein spectacularness is not the objective but the means.
In creating this exhibition, Xavier Veilhan drew inspiration from the Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo, suspended between heaven and earth on the 7th floor of the Maison Louis Vuitton Omotesando. Named “Free Fall”, the exhibition was “conceived specifically for this central, weightless place”, he notes.
