Huis Marseille: Viviane Sassen – Venus & Mercury

Back to overview

1 June – 30 August

This exhibition was born in Versailles, where Sassen created new work inspired by various accounts of the French royal court in the 17th and 18th centuries. She wove these stories into a melancholic narrative drenched in eroticism, power, intrigue, illness, decay, and death. Sassen also created a number of new installations specially for Huis Marseille, including one based on the residential history of this Amsterdam canal-side house.
