Description

Jeff Koons became prominent in the mid-1980s by targeting the meaning of art and spectacle in a media-saturated era. Since his first solo exhibition which consisted of small-scale assemblages of toys and found objects, his later works evolved into the now-iconic monumental pieces which can be found permanently installed at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. This monograph examines Koons’ parallels to Duchamp and the function of readymades over the course of his career. His methodical inquiry into the ways in which everyday items become works of art by reflecting our desires draws attention to the continuity of images as they pass through time, combining art historical references with colloquial imagery. As part of the 2000 Words series published by DESTE, this title features an essay by Massimiliano Gioni and Natalie Bell. Koons has created a prophecy fueled by the ecstasy of materialism, where the image or object becomes its own ouroboros—consuming itself.
