[Spotlight] Kenny SCHACHTER | LOST IN SPACE: The Koons Episode | MAY 2022 Modern and Contemporary Art

Spotlight from the "51st SBI Art Auction|Modern and Contemporary Art" sales on Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28, 2022.


ARTIST'S STATEMENT
The world of NFTs have fast become overpopulated with celebrities, gimmicks and hype to the point that art is practically lost in the background amongst the ever increasing noise and chatter. On another note, many artists in the pursuit fame and fortune, have abandoned critical thinking; and, in the process, developed a new form of content which is a hybrid of luxury goods, design/toys and art. Jeff Koons and his gallery have set their sights beyond the traditional art world and are shooting for the moon—literally. This work is a satire employing humor to comment on the commercialization of art, artists and technology.


*Exhibited:May 5 - 8, 2022 "Data Corruption" Allouche Benias Gallery, Independent Art Fair 2022, New York
