Behind the Scenes: Jeff Koons' Balloon Flower (Blue)

Description

A behind-the-scenes look at the unveiling of Jeff Koons' magnificent Balloon Flower (Blue), a highlight of Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Evening Sale on 10 November in New York. Executed from 1995-2000, Balloon Flower (Blue) is one of Koons’ most important sculptures and belongs to his acclaimed Celebration series. Hailing from the renowned Daimler Art Collection, the sculpture was acquired directly from the artist and has for many years graced Berlin’s famous Potsdamer Platz. (RT: 1:15)

"What I love about the Balloon pieces is that there is this temporal quality which implies the delicacy of life and the importance of each moment."    - Jeff Koons
