‘Each viewer’s cultural history is perfect’

Post by iSiZ

Last week I had the opportunity to see Jeff Koons’s artwork in Frankfurt, Germany. It is quite impressive to see so many works from close by.

I especially like the Banality series. He blows up kitch sculptures, gives them a personal touch and brings it back to life by making them life-size. In my experience the sculptures radiate a happy feeling. Watch a short video from 2011 by SothebysTV. At the time they were selling one of four Pink Panther porcelain sculptures. The woman portrayed in de sculpture is Jayne Mansfield holding the cartoon character Pink Panther.
