Jeff Koons Versailles

September 16, 2008

The Château de Versailles presents the exhibition Jeff Koons Versailles in the Royal Apartments and in the gardens of the Castle. The show presents seventeen Jeff Koons works, including his most significant works from the Eighties to these days. The project focuses on the close relationship between each work and the space surrounding it. The works have been selected specifically for Les grands appartements at the piano nobile, composed by Les appartements du Roi (The King’s apartments) and Les appartements de la Reine (The Queen’s apartments), which formed a suite of several rooms “en enfilade”. These large apartments are the most prestigious and important spaces of the Castle, since they were the official halls of the Sun King, composed as one of the richest expression of art and architecture. In this video: impressions from the press preview with statements by Jeff Koons. The exhibition runs until December 14, 2008. Versailles / France, September 10, 2008. Video by Christophe Ecoffet.

    Jeff Koons and his “art” is the absolute epitome of b.s.
    He is a delusional maniacal idiot.
    He is the equivalent of a 14 year-old boy misbehaving in order to receive negative attention.
    The billionaires who support him are equally lost.
    The galleries. museums, curators, and critics who support him are simply using him to promote their careers and gain attention.
    This is a classic case of >>>THE EMPERORS NEW CLOTHES<<<

    The Giant balloon dog is Hilarious! Some of the other stuff is a little creepy. I guess it’s just up to the eye of the beholder.
