Charles Petillon

These balloon invasions are metaphors. Their goal is to change the way in which we see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them.

“It is our way of looking at things that I am trying to transform and revive, and therefore make it possible to go beyond practical perception to aesthetic experience: a visual emotion”.

Each balloon has its own dimensions and yet is part of a giant but fragile composition.

This fragility is represented by contrasting materials and also the whiteness of the balloons. All details of these installations will eventually disappear becoming nothing more than a simple form.
