Last week, South Korean artist Lee Ufan unveiled a series of 10 commissioned works on the grounds of the Chateau de Versailles outside of Paris, France.
Ufan’s pieces take shape as large-scale sculptures and installations. Simple structures such as immersive rock gardens and the exhibition’s iconic polished-concrete arch stand in stark contrast to the decadent landscape of the Chateau grounds. The striking differences between the historical grounds and the exhibition works lead visitors to discover the dialogue and harmonies that can exist between objects that—at first—seem wholly dissimilar.
Ufan’s works will be on view at Chateau de Versailles until early November 2014.

The experience of living abroad has been a magical one for Brazil Instagrammer Leticia Davolli (@ledavolli), who has called Toronto home for the last five years. “All of a sudden, you see the world through the eyes of a foreigner,” she says. “You never belong to a single place again.”
Leticia strives to preserve her foreigner’s perspective on the city while still maintaining ties to her roots back home. “I try to maintain the perspective of a newcomer in Toronto by really exploring each corner, sidewalk and coffee shop through the lens of my phone. When I first moved to Toronto, I created the blog Para Minha Mãe, translating to “For My Mother,” as a way to share my experiences in Toronto with my mom. I wanted to share the cool parts of the city that were not mentioned in most city guides. After a while, the blog naturally developed a wider audience and people started writing in and asking me for city recommendations.”
Leticia is especially fascinated by Toronto’s independent café scene. “People gather there to find inspiration and connect with others,” she says. “My mother also loves coffee shops. Being in cafés is a way to reconnect with my essence and origins.”
