This bites.


This does not look consensual.

Place Vendome, the elegant landmark that houses the Ritz Hotel, the Ministre de la Justice, and top fashion houses, is currently being violated by the sculptures of Dutch artist, Franz West. While Napoleon erected the first column in the center of the square, these newly erected ‘columns’ suggest a completely different type of complex.

What is going on. Did someone roofie a Ministere into approving this?

Unfortunately the gallery has failed to post a press release on their site.

UPDATE: The sculptures are entitled “Les Pommes d’Adam,” which means “The Apples of Adam,” or perhaps “Adams’ Apples”? But the last time I checked the Adam’s apple was on a man’s neck, not his . . . ?

UPDATE2: Most unfortunate news. It’s on display until November 8.
