Koons, Walker and the Examination of Life and Death

Jeff Koons and Kara Walker are far from the first artists to explore the concept of life and death in their artwork. In fact, this concept is the very essence of what the art world constantly seeks to investigate. These artists have both examined this topic by creating and controlling temporary installations that evolve with time. This, in turn, broadens the audience's experience of their work.

Jeff Koons intentionally encourages the growth of the flowers on Split-Rocker, and Kara Walker deliberately let A Subtlety evolve by allowing its sugar-coated sculptures to melt. They both use the temporary fate of their chosen medium to make a statement about life and death.
