Overview

This volume offers a fascinating inside look at the controversial Skin Fruit exhibition, curated by Jeff Koons from the Dakis Joannou Collection in 2010. The photographs in this book, composed by Koons himself as he installed the show capture a sequence of startling encounters: disparate artworks in eloquent communication with one another, just as they live in the collection. Guiding the reader through the exhibition room by room, alongside a pensive and candid commentary by Koons, Skin Fruit: A View of a Collection offers a rare opportunity to delve inside the artist’s private thoughts on collecting, curating and the nature of art. “I enjoyed installing the exhibition, letting the works have the opportunity to interact with each other because that’s what happens in a collection,” says Koons. “It’s a salon-type experience. There is no hierarchy of worth or value. There is just interaction and communication.”
