A Live Performance at Shoreditch Church - a 48 hour durational living installation...read more...
Cherophobia is a 48-hour durational living installation. It is an attempt to lift the artist's bound and immobilised body off the ground using 20,000 helium party balloons. It is a performance and a gathering, a one-off event that intertwines people in their shared suspense and anticipation.
Cherophobia is a work of contrasts and opposites, of the push and pull between fear and desire, freedom and constraint and about our responsibility to make choices. The cheerful, happy image of a giant cloud of balloons stands in stark contrast to the artist's bound, restricted and immobilised body, while the helium-filled balloons pulling upwards are in turn constrained by the church building.
