French artist Charles Pétillon has filled london’s 19th century covent garden market building with 100,000 giant white balloons. Named ‘Heartbeat’ , the work is pétillon’s first public art installation, and his first ever live work outside of his native country.
Pétillon elaborates, “The balloon invasions I create are metaphors, their goal is to change the way in which see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them. With ‘Heartbeat’ I want to represent the market building as the beating heart of the area – connecting its past with the present day to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life.”
