BREATHING IN THE AIR

Breathing in the Air
By Anna Frants, 2010
Size: Variable

Whether it is, filled with regular air, hanging on a wall, or, filled with helium, breaking away from our hands toward the sky, a toy balloon is always an inanimate object. But in this installation, the balloons are not only animate, but also breathing. Decorative at its core, the balloons arranged on trees in a certain pattern, present a work of art in a traditional sense, though a compressor, that supplies them with air and makes them breathe in and out, turns this work into an example of the art that is certainly modern. But, timeless or avant-garde, this installation is inspired in a literal sense because the word “inspiration” means “breathed in by a god” whose role in this case is played by an electric machine.
