Remember when I mentioned contemporary Icelandic artist Katrin Sigurdardottir's new installation for The Met?  She created two full-scale sculptural interpretations of 18th-century French rooms based on interiors preserved at the Museum, one from the Hôtel de Crillon (1777-80) on the Place de la Concorde, Paris, and the other from the Hôtel de Cabris (ca. 1774) at Grasse in Provence.

On Friday, December 10th at 7 p.m., Sigurdardottir will be at The Met to discuss her work with curators Anne Strauss and Daniëlle O. Kisluk-Grosheide. There will also be an opportunity meet the artist during a private reception after the talk. Tickets are $18. Click here for details.

They remind me of the stark white astronaut's quarters at the end of "2001: A Space Odyssey".
