Huffington Post

I was asked by GLAM4GOOD to create a series of fashionable social media heroines that have something affirmative to say. The pieces featured on the Huffington Post and I took some screen grabs of the article. When I looked at the right hand side of the screen to the 'Most Popular' posts on the Huffington Post website I saw there were some interesting juxtapositions between the content of their posts and the content of my artworks.

Small Edition

‘Small Edition’ by Artist Jon Burgerman is Inspired by ‘Play-Doh', the 10 foot tall, multi-coloured, aluminium Jeff Koons sculpture currently on display at New York’s Whitney Museum.
This Saturday, 2 August 2014, at 12 noon, outside the Whitney Museum, Jon Burgerman will set up a pop-up stall to promote and sell his ‘Small Edition’ sculptures which are actually made out of Play-Doh.

It is more real than the real thing.
Instead of taking 20 years to make, it only took about 20 seconds.

It’s pretty cheap too.

Each sculpture comes housed in a clear 3x3x3” display case and a certificate of authenticity.
At a recent party for mass market fashion retailer H&M to celebrate the launch of the limited- edition Koons “Balloon Dog” purse (yours for just $49.50), Jeff Koons explained “I want my work to be accessible to people.” Now it is!
                                                  

The sculptures will be available from noon Saturday 2 August 2014 from as near to the Whitney Museum as is possible without arrest.
