Description

“Balloon Rabbit” revisits Jeff Koons’s monumental sculpture of the same title from the highly acclaimed Celebration Series. Here, the sculpture of a twisted balloon rabbit brings Koons's unparalleled optimistic ideology and humor into an accessible form. This adaptation sees Koons’s perfectionist approach condensed to a relatively intimate scale.

About Jeff Koons

Rising to prominence from the East Village scene of 1980s New York, Jeff Koons (b. 1955) stands as one of the most recognizable artists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Koons combines the legacy of Marcel Duchamp’s readymade, the Pop aesthetic of Andy Warhol, and the industrial embrace of Minimalism to create works that elevate the low-brow and kitsch to a scale of monumentality worthy of the art historical canon. Whether it’s the massive, shining balloon animals of the “Celebration” series or the pristine porcelain statuary of Michael Jackson and his pet monkey, Bubbles, Koons’s works are immediately recognizable, even if their sincerity remains unclear.
