"Balloon Dog […]. That's a very optimistic piece. Its a balloon a clown would make at a kid's birthday party. But it's also a Trojan Horse that hides other things inside it. Perhaps that's because of the work's sexual character." Jeff Koons in an interview with David Sylvester on February 6, 2000, in: Jeff Koons. Easyfun-Ethereal, Ostfildern-Ruit 2000, p. 31.
