I went to the exhibition Jeff Koons, and this exhibition has delighted my teens. Why? -Because It is an easily accessible art, figurative, beautiful too. The objects belong to the daily, they are polished, shiny, with bright colors, tart. We start the tour with the early works of Jeff Koons: plastic rabbits placed on mirrors and the series of Hoover vacuums placed on neon. Vacuum cleaners date back 50 years and yet they are obviously still new, as we age. By their status as a work of art, they escape aging to their status as everyday consumer object, as we get older. Then come the balance sneakers balls in aquariums which one describes the composition: sodium chloride solution. For these works, you begin to enter the scientific and industrial world of the universe of Jeff Koons. To achieve these basketballs suspended in aquariums he was assisted by Dr. Richard Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics. Simplicity is developed. As always in modern art, even here apparently easily accessible needs explanation. Then the exhibition was continued by rococo objects like the statue of Michael Jackson in golden earthenware and finally the famous balloons sculptures, which look disproportionately on balloons that are twisted to give them animal shapes. Except that these objects are in polished steel.
There is this wonderful red heart, which keeps the ceiling by a thin golden cord and air fleet and slightly in space. Yet it weighs a ton.
Technical prowess or artwork? Both at a time. Jeff Koons is today one of the most expensive artists in the world. It is also a small company that employs about 120 people. The realization of some works took more than three years.
Jeff Koons is also directed, in the most crude way, especially in a room where access is prohibited under 18, which contains pornographic photographs of him and his first wife Ciciolliona.
The exhibition runs until April 27, 2015: night until 23h on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for the exhibition Jeff Koons (last entry at 22h) at the Beaubourg center.
