After fucking fake artist Damien Hirst in his overhyped bum just last week, the brassy fake American Apparel ad burlesquer splashes water in the face of the neo-pop bullshitter. Koons’s “Equilibrium” (1985) consists of one Wilson and two Spalding basketballs floating in a mixture of sodium chloride reagent and distilled water. According to the artist, it suggests “death.” As does diarrhea. So let me be the first to call it: the AA prankster’s racy reimagining of Koons’s krap suggests “life.” OK, where’s my Art In America column?
