The most famous of these sculptures is Michael Jackson and Bubbles, a grotesquely sentimental trinket that Koons, along with the other items in the series, finds “very beautiful, very seductive. I find beauty in the acceptance of cultural history. I think what’s interesting is to see them in museums with other historical artefacts. I had an exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany, in which Michael Jackson was with a sarcophagus from Egypt. It’s fantastic. It’s like an Egyptian pharaoh. It’s a historical context.”
das finde ich sehr witzig, weil mich das an einen unserer besuche im metropolitan museum of art erinnert. dort sah das kind diesen sarkophag und sagte das könne der sarkophag von michael jackson sein.
