Artistic industry in the studio of Jeff Koons



There are not many places on earth where paintings of Popeye mingle with giant lobsters, or where a team can scheme to hang a full-sized train from a crane. But as this episode of TateShots proves, anything is possible in the studio of Jeff Koons.Fresh from exhibiting his work at the Palace of Versailles (the first time a contemporary artist has been invited to exhibit there), the boundary-breaking artist gave us a whistle-stop tour of his factory-like facility. Later in the year, his work will appear at Tate Modern – first as part of the Artist Rooms collection display, then in the exhibition Sold Out.
