Welcome balloon (2016)

A helium balloon is flying outside the building of L’Escaut. His string goes through the gate to my hand. I’m walking in the long yard (behind the gate). When I go near the gate, the balloon goes up. When I go far from the gate, the balloon goes down. At some point, I also play with the street. I cross the street with my string and the balloon, and come back.

I wanted to do something at the border of the art space, to invite the people of the area of l’Escaut to enter the space.

Long duration performance. In the frame of Fluctu, a performance event in l’Escaut, Brussels.
