Jeff Koons and Dakis Joannou have enjoyed a close friendship and artistic dialogue for nearly three decades. Joannou has been a great supporter of Koons’s work from the beginning of his career, and a large concentration of Koons’s work from all periods is at the core of the Joannou collection. Apart from the shows that draw on works from the collection, the DESTE Foundation has also initiated several ongoing projects including the DESTE Prize, awarded biannually to an emerging Greek artist; and the annual Hydra Slaughterhouse Project, which was inaugurated in 2009 with a collaboration by Matthew Barney and Elizabeth Peyton.

Jeffrey Deitch told me that the tank remains central to the Joannou collection

Jeffrey Deitch told me that the tank remains central to the Joannou collection. How would you define the spirit of this collection? KOONS: Dakis is drawn to things that stir curiosity – things that are on the edges of normal perception, things that help break down rules and dogma. All in all, the exhibition was set to be a fascinating meeting of minds from the most venerated institutions of the modern world: financiers, corporate designers and advisors, art collectors and, of course, artists too. The Joannou-Deitch partnership was intellectually concerned with the condition of the modern consumer yet completely gripped by its own consumption on an epic level.

Jeffrey Deitch, curator of the groundbreaking Deste Foundation exhibition Fractured Figure, describes the concept thus: "If every period in art can be characterized by an approach to figuration that reflects the prevailing sense of the human condition, Fractured Figure represents a sense of cultural dysphoria, a state of dissatisfaction and anxiety, the opposite of euphoria. The new figural form is ruptured and deteriorating. It is fragile, just like real people... A search for truth, after years of being derided as an anachronistic and misguided pursuit in a world where there is no absolute truth, might actually be coming back to art. This truth is a different kind of truth, however. It is fragmented, complicated and multi-sided, not absolute... The Fractured Figure bears artistic witness to a fractured world and calls for a renewed embrace of humanity." This second volume is a compendium of the first edition of Fractured Figure, put together by Urs Fischer and Cassandra MacLeod. While the first volume was more of an artist's walkthrough, this new volume is a more traditional look at the works in the exhibition, which included such contemporary luminaries as Pawel Althamer, assume vivid astro focus, John Bock, Maurizio Cattelan, Paul Chan, Nathalie Djurberg, Barnaby Furnas, Robert Gober, Martin Kippenberger, Terence Koh, Jeff Koons, Nate Lowman, Paul McCarthy, Wangechi Mutu, Cady Noland, Tino Sehgal, Dana Schutz and Andro Wekua.
