Fondation Beyeler - Flyer Koons

cleaning applicances of his early period, symbols of newness and purity. Banality includes those traditionally crafted sculptures in porcelain and wood which have since become (post-)modern icons. Finally, in the Celebration series, on which Koons has been working for almost twenty years, appear high-gloss steel sculptures of unique material perfection, and large-format paintings in which the artist celebrates childhood in a veritably baroque way. Koons’s equally spectacular and subtle works are repeatedly concerned with themes such as innocence, beauty, sexuality and happiness. These reflect his conception of an art that is accessible to every viewer. In parallel with the exhibition, Jeff Koons’s monumental floral sculpture Split-Rocker, composed of thousands and thousands of real plants and introducing a unique dialogue between art and nature, will be installed in the Fondation Beyeler park.
