Documenting Koons’ multisensory homage to the sun god, a timeless dialogue with ancient history The definitive record of Jeff Koons’ (born 1955) Apollo Wind Spinner, his transcendent offering to Apollo, this volume brings together lush plates of the eponymous 2022 DESTE exhibition alongside an essay by Daniel Birnbaum and an extensive interview with the artist by Dakis Joannou. Koons’ multisensory installation shone a light on the interwoven history of Greek myth, readymade sculpture and contemporary art to wide acclaim?so much so that the inhabitants of Hydra voted unanimously to have the work remain permanently installed on the roof of the DESTE Slaughterhouse building. The many threads of this particular story are explicated here through a detailed “glossary of terms,” tracing references from Plato to Duchamp and enlightening the reader on one of Koons’ most distinctive works of the last decade.
