Work No. 262 / Half the Air a in Given Space
tue-sun 13h-17h (mon closed)
Material: Green 16” balloons (lime green)
Part of a series of balloon works, Work No. 262: Half the air in a given space creates a monochromatic sea of bright green balloons that viewers must navigate through. This physical experience often creates a childish joy within the viewer, along with an underlying sense of claustrophobia.
Creed’s balloon works span different sizes and colours, but always isolate half of the air within a space and give physical presence to something that is normally invisible.
Creed is well-known for constantly and systematically challenging definitions of art through sometimes mundane, and yet deeply thoughtful gestures.
