"Balloon Dog […]. That's an optimistic piece. It's like a balloon a clown would make at a kids birthday party. At the same time its like a Trojan horse: other things are hiden inside. Perhaps that's because of the work's sexual character." Jeff Koons in an interview with David Sylvester February 6, 2000, in: Jeff Koons. Easyfun-Ethereal, Ostfildern-Ruit 2000, p. 31.
