London: Jeff Koons ‘POPEYE SERIES’ at the Serpentine Gallery opens tomorrow, through September 13, 2009

Jeff Koons’s first major exhibition in a public gallery in England opens tomorrow. The show at the Serpentine features works drawn from public and private holdings, and some new works on display for the first time. The “Popeye Series” “creates a world beyond taste,” appropriation art at its finest. The extraordinary and the mundane are put side by side: Popeye and and Olive Oyl are embedded in multi-layered paint. Garbage cans and chairs, chains and even the occasional inflatable, are put to use in the sculptures of the “Popeye Series.”
