Jeff Koons in "Artists' jewelry from Calder to Koons"

A violent polemic is raging over the installation of “Bouquet of Tulips” between the Musée d’Art Moderne and the Palais de Tokyo. Meanwhile, the show at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs includes another Jeff Koons piece that has spawned no objections or petitions: the platinum “Rabbit” pendant made for fashion designer Stella McCartney. Only 7.5 cm high (as opposed to the 12-meter “Bouquet of Tulips”), this piece of jewelry expresses the ultra-kitsch approach of the American artist in a nutshell.

“Artists’ jewelry from Calder to Koons – Diane Venet’s ideal collection” at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, from March 7th until July 8th, 2018

Rabbit necklace, 2005-2009 –  Jeff Koons edition for Stella McCartney – Diane Venet’s collection
