Anish Kapoor: the “Vagina Queen” degraded a 4th time – Le Figaro

The work controversy exposed to Versailles, already the victim of three acts of vandalism, has again been targeted in the night from Sunday to Monday.

How is this possible? At Versailles, the relentlessness towards Dirty Corner British artist continues again and again. In the night from Sunday to Monday, the artwork was attacked for the fourth time.

This time it is the expression “blame” which was included on one of the sheets gold for covering the ancient graffiti. Following a court order demanding the withdrawal of tags, Anish Kapoor had indeed chosen this aesthetic response to repeated damage suffered by Dirty Corner.

Catherine Pégard, President of the Estate of Versailles, had however assured in the columns of Le Figaro that security around the work, renamed “Vagina Queen” had been increased.

In charge of the investigation, the departmental security (SD 78) survey of extreme right, but has yet identified any suspects.

Every night, three people responsible for monitoring of the installation.
