Dom Pérignon and Jeff Koons are widely recognized icons, unrivalled in originality and in power of fascination. Both have joined audacious forces to deliver a playful expression of the power of creation. Beyond their very strong respective universes, both share a symbiotic approach to the creative act, regarding their respect for the great history and their constant innovation. Adapted from Jeff Koons’s monumental sculpture, the Balloon Venus for Dom Pérignon pays homage to the power of a continued creative energy, echoing the spiritual legacy of Dom Pierre Pérignon that is still a source of inspiration for the wine creator, Chef de cave Richard Geoffroy.
Jeff Koons, born in 1955, is one of the most famous American contemporary artists. He is an incredible chronicler of the contemporary world, and a perfectionist artist obsessed with proposing an art accessible to everyone. He has blended the concerns and methods of Pop, Conceptual, and appropriation art with popular culture to create his own unique iconography
Dom Pierre Pérignon was the procurator of the Abbey of Hautvillers in Champagne from 1668 to 1715. His life’s work was guided by the single aim of experimenting and innovating to elaborate what he named: the “best wine in the world”. Today, each new vintage of Dom Pérignon is inspired by the same quest. For every vintage is a new beginning, a reinvention.
