An icon of contemporary art and a figurehead of Neo-Pop, Jeff Koons is undoubtedly one of the most talented and provocative artists of his generation. His work, as controversial as eclectic and visionary, is based on the diversion of everyday objects that the artist steals from their ordinary destiny to question the status of the artist and the work of art. A vacuum cleaner, a basketball, a mirror ... By using manufactured products that he is certainly the first to place inside a museum, Koons purely and simply revolutionizes our conception of what a sculpture or a painting should be.
In Donkey, shimmering at two meters high, Koons plays on a theme that therefore is dear to him -redefining the concept of a work of art- while playing on archetypes of his resolutely childish and optimistic oeuvre. Close to the universe of Walt Disney, the bestiary of Koons, populated by dogs and other steeds with rounded shapes and gleaming shells borrows from the most contemporary American mythology in order to deliver an allegory of desire and lust particularly representative of the post-industrial society that Koons apparently loves as much as he hates.
