Review:

At the Serpentine Gallery there is a Jeff Koons exhibition of cast inflatable kids toys sometimes 
inserted in to a stack of plastic chairs (also cast), along with some paintings with Jeff Koons 
imagery  big pert boobs jump to mind, layered upon Popeye, and images of inflatable lobsters - as 
if we needed reminding of the surrealists love of the subconscious and (male) desire.  The female 
naked body has been discretely cropped out of the on line images on the Serpentine web site, and 
no mention is made of the choice to objectify women in this way, it is, it seems taken for granted.
