We had the opportunity to visit a major exhibition of Jeff Koons here in London. It featured over thirty paintings including works on papers and sculptures and is the most extensive exhibition of the artist’s work in the UK to date.
It is presented his works from 1979 to 2014, including some pieces form the Hirst’s collection that have never been seen before in UK, together with the most iconic works - the Hoovers sculptures and the massive Monkey Balloon which manage to fill an entire room. The artists designed the reflecting surface of this sculpture to remind viewers of their own existence.
It is followed by “Made in Heaven”, the series representing Jeff Koons and his then wife, Cicciolina, involved in various erotic scenes. On the first floor there is a series of inflatable pool toys that interact with readymade objects. These sculpture are indeed made of aluminium, but give the illusion that it is made of vinyl as he uses size shifting and eye tricking material to create emotional charge.
