David Zwirner Gallery
29 March, 2018 - 31 March, 2018
David Zwirner will participate in Art Basel Hong Kong for its sixth consecutive year, and will feature five recent works by Jeff Koons, who will be present at the fair with the gallery. Jeff Koons (b. 1955, York, Pennsylvania) is widely regarded for his bold paintings and monumental sculptures that hold a mirror up to contemporary culture. Using the photorealistic and commercial aesthetic familiar from an earlier generation of Pop artists, Koons has generated his own universally recognizable style that frequently comprises smooth, highly reflective surfaces and bright, saturated colors. Koons typically works in series, tapping into subject matter from popular culture and art history that is frequently reminiscent of childhood in order to empower the viewer toward achieving a state of personal transcendence. On view at David Zwirner’s booth will be Bluebird Planter (2010–2016), Swan (Inflatable) (2011–2015) and three works from Koons’s Gazing Ball series (begun in 2013).
