‘Is it sperm or lollipops?’ Parisians don’t seem to want new Jeff Koons sculpture

A Jeff Koons sculpture given to Paris by the US artist himself in homage to the victims of the 2015 jihadist terror attacks is set to be installed in the city in the next few days. But no one in Paris appears to want it.

The French capital is a city which has a history of appreciating avant-garde art.

But apparently, “Bouquet of Tulips” by Jeff Koons, made of 33 tons of bronze and aluminium and standing 12-metres-high, hasn’t quite hit the mark for Parisians.
