Photo-Souvenir: Daniel Buren, Les Deux Plateaux, Sculpture Permanente in Situ, Cour d'Honneur du Palais Royal, Paris. Detail. @DP-ADAGP PAR, 1985–1986
Les Deux Plateaux is located in the inner courtyard (Cour d'Honneur) of the Palais Royal in Paris, France.
As described by Andrew Ayers, "Buren's work takes the form of a conceptual grid imposed on the courtyard, whose intersections are marked by candy-striped black-and-white columns of different heights poking up from the courtyard's floor like sticks of seaside rock. ... In one sense the installation can be read as an exploration of the perception and intellectual projection of space."
