Chateau Récit No.1: Eau! - Billie Muraben with Soft Baroque

£5.00

Eau! considers the tricksy history of the dancing fountain, from its origins in Ancient Greece, through Renaissance Italy and Louis Vuitton’s Paris fondation, to theories of a flat earth and the Tower of Babel; Louis XIV’s Les Grandes Musicales at the Château de Versailles and Steve Wynn’s Fountains of Bellagio... “How cool is that?!” 

New writing and image editing by Billie Muraben accompanies a poster design by Soft Baroque, in which the tubular steel furniture of high Modernism is misappropriated to serve as plumbing for a speculative water feature.
