SCULPTURE + INSTALLATION
Exhibited at Unit London Gallery as part of the 2016 HIX AWARD.
Balloon Dog is an appropriation of Jeff Koons' Balloon Dog (1994 - 2000).
Alexandria Frances explores the commodification of art, value and the art market by using inexpensive materials such as balloons and spray paint, juxtaposing the unbreakable and intimidating sculpture of Koons' Balloon Dog.
The ephemeral materials allow the viewer to witness the deflation of the work over time, and in turn reveal unique details within the surface.
