The SEATED BALLERINA Inflatable Sculpture By Jeff Koons In NYC

In the middle of Rockefeller Center, Jeff Koons has installed a 45-foot-high inflatable nylon sculpture that towers above visitors to the iconic new york city plaza. The larger-than-life ‘Seated Ballerina’ – scaled up from the artist’s ‘Antiquity’ series – symbolically refers to themes of beauty and connectivity, serving as a contemporary interpretation of the mythological goddess Venus. The project is intended to raise awareness of national missing children’s month in May. ‘This partnership will increase awareness and help the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children make the world a safer place for children’, Koons said in a statement. Continuing, ‘I hope the installation of seated ballerina at Rockefeller Center offers a sense of affirmation and excitement to the viewer to reach their potential. The aspect of reflectivity emulates life’s energy; it’s about contemplation and what it means to be a human being. it’s a very hopeful piece’.
