The Seated Ballerina is part of Jeff Koons's Antiquity series – where one would find Eros as it’s source. Through this series, Koons tackles the subject of acceptance, humanity, and essential life patterns that repeatedly surface throughout his career.

The subject of depicting a dancer has been such a popular motif throughout the history of art; such as by Degas, Picasso, and Chagall. With this wooden edition Jeff Koons makes a nostalgic come back to this subject.

The Prado Museum in Madrid is home to one of the largest and most important art collections in the world, in the spring of 2007 it served as the setting for an unusual Spanish-German exhibition project. Thomas Struth, one of the leading figures of the Düsseldorf school of photography, had a selection of his notorious large-format Museum Photographs on display. Struth's Museum series draws attention to the unexpected perceptions that the medium of photography can offer, in particular the different perceptions associated with photographic images taken in a museum – such as the various interactions taking place between the visitor(s) and the museum space, exhibition and art on display.

Jeff Koon's latest edition is possibly the most festive and staggeringly beautiful artwork from his Celebration series. The American artist has once again challenged the technical means, with the meticulousness of his latest project, as well as stretched the capabilities of porcelain practice throughout the 52 sharp cuts of the diamond.

Titled Diamond (Red), Jeff Koons reveals a reimagined iconography of a diamond, he revisits the form of nature´s creation that takes billions of years to form. As always, his works capture perfection not a glimpse or fragment of reality, but of the ideal, of a world of obtained dreams and perfection - the Diamond (Red) has a deliberate visual language that introduces us to a synthetic man-made creation.

Peter Doig’s painterly Magic Realism is inspired by everyday sceneries from the artist's surroundings, by art and movies like the horror film Friday the 13th. Doig’s works evoke a mysterious world of its own, which the viewer can access only to a certain point. The interaction with Doig’s works brings the feeling of timelessness, which at any time could be interrupted by unexpected events.

The Collector's Set of the Balloon Animals incorporates the vocabulary of Jeff Koons's iconic Celebration series; the Balloon Rabbit, Balloon Monkey, and Balloon Swan, that marked a spectacular new chapter in the artist´s oeuvre. These works touch on various important subjects of the history of art; such as the biblical creation, our anti-aging obsession, the memento mori, cheating death, as well as through its materiality; porcelain with chromatic coating. Koons democratizes porcelain, a material once used exclusively for kings, to the masses, and the reflection of the Balloon Animals adds elements of the Greek myth of Narcissus - "if you don´t move, nothing happens", as Koons has said.

Balloon Animals (Collector´s Set), 2017-2019
French Limoges porcelain with chromatic coating

Donald Sultan’s works appear simple, yet are powerful pieces that contain layers of complexity. His still-life sculptures are filled with rich iconography—provocative objects, like bulbous fruits and flowers, with textures and space that seem almost understated but have a boldness that can’t be ignored. Although primarily classified as a still lifes, Sultan maintains that his works are first and foremost abstract.

Hiking through the Icelandic landscape means to get oneself into it. In this loneliness full of moss, lichens, volcanic stones, and the melancholic bird-call of the golden plover high above it, it is difficult, Eliasson once said, "to say if a destination is 30 minutes away or maybe three hours or three days. So the question is about the point of view, about the perspective one has."

"People see space as a compilation, the placing of layers on top of each other. But you can also make a space by removing all the surrounding elements and then seeing what’s left."
—Olafur Eliasson

In Paper Kite Butterfly on Oleander, Hirst features his signature motif – the butterfly – alive in its natural surroundings, hanging from a beautiful, strikingly coloured blossom. In this, he has created an uplifting and celestial image that inspires childlike wonder in the face of such a beauty of nature. At the same time, however, it provokes fundamental questions about the meaning of life, a life which is characterized by death, and the fragility of biological existence.

“I love butterflies because when they are dead they look alive."—Damien Hirst

The distinction between life and death, myth and medicine, is explored by the Cabinet series, as they serve as a shrine to modern pharmaceuticals.

There is no imminent promise of salvation, no escape offered in these works. Those black pills, as in Dark Black Heaven, are as threatening as they are strangely attractive, a dark fatal allure which we already know leads to one ultimate destiny.

Hirst’s work questions the equivocal role of medicine. It can either take life and save life or destroy and restore. These pills are not a memento mori like the skulls or the butterflies. They are a symbol of resignation and alienation from life, and a fatal attraction towards death.

"It’s like God should be, the way they sell you the pills, the forms, the utopia, the hope, the cure. We’ve come a long way since quack doctors."—Damien Hirst

The pharmaceutical cabinets, as in Hirst’s work Utopia, question people´s complete reliance on medications and their power to heal, which fulfill the natural desire for immortality. However, the question is: Can drugs cure this problem, or can art?

text image

On the other hand, Gold tears, which is part of the Utopia series, depicts rows of shiny diamonds on shelves covered with golden foil in front of a golden-beige background. The image is an intense vision of a golden cabinet filled with diamonds, a vision often associated with glorious eternity. But as always in Hirst’s art, the ambiguity is obvious – this cabinet points to the fact that behind all the shiny glittery surfaces there might be nothing, no meaning, and no soul. And hence the desire for eternity is less a promise than a condemnation.

"I can’t understand why most people believe in medicine and don’t believe in art, without questioning either."—Damien Hirst
