Jeff Koons (born in 1955 in York, USA) is renowned for his public sculptures. The gazing balls that animate Jeff Koons’s most recent works abound with layers of associations and meanings - historical, mythological, sexual, personal, universal - but, above all, they offer us a way to confront what we might call Jeff Koons’s own artistic DNA: these works embody where Koons ‘comes from’ and where he is heading.
Features ‘Jeff Koon’s Gazing Balls or the Eye of Janus Today’ and ‘Jeff Koon’s Epic Poem’, essays by Joachim Pissaro.
This book is published in conjunction with the presentation of Jeff Koons’s new works Standing Woman and Demeter at Art Basel, from June 16th to June 21st, 2015.
