Bal­loons in bloom

The Daily Telegraph - - World News -

Amer­i­can artist Jeff Koons is to meet Christophe Gi­rard, Paris’s deputy mayor for cul­ture, to de­cide where to place his much­crit­i­cised sculp­ture Bou­quet of Tulips. The 10-me­tre (34-foot) work is made of bronze, stain­less steel and alu­minium. Koons said it is a to­ken of “re­mem­brance to the vic­tims of the ter­ri­ble tragedies” that rocked the cap­i­tal in 2014 and 2015, adding that he wanted “to give hope to the sur­viv­ing fam­ily mem­bers”.
