Jeff Koons' sculpture of Michael Jackson and Bubbles has captured the imagination of some porn blogs, (How did they get here??) and are linking the image from this blog (??)
It's not really at all surprising because Koons was married to and has a child with the Porn Star Ilona Staller (aka Cicciolina), who once held a seat in the Italian Parliament. She also offered to have sex with Bush I and Sadamn if they would stop the Gulf War I. However, I am pretty sure that reference is lost on those guys as there are no mention of it at all... I guess Koon in many ways share similar sensibilities. (I can't believe those guys are using my bandwidth tho. Ergh...)
Koons made a series called “Made in Heaven” in 1991 which were sculptures and paintings of him and his wife having (graphic) sex. It sold poorly. But after the artist and porn star bitterly divorced, Koon, in a fit of rage, smashed up the leftovers that no one bought -which in turn sent the prices of the remaining pieces sky rocketing.
Art or not? You decide: Made in Heaven Series
