The balloons have always attracted the attention of children, but in this case, captivated the photographer Charles Pétillon. The artist uses this object to create interventions in public spaces. So, lots of white balloons flood houses, forests, wineries, basketball courts, among other places.
The French artist titles this project Invasions, a word associated with the presence of balloons, as they do not respect the limits of physics. Images of these interventions are presented at the Maison de Photographie in Paris on February 20 to March 22 this year. Invasions is a look at the decline of architecture: a structure that someday symbolized the future, and is now part of the disappearance. The idea is that the balloons stop flowing to revive her, besides being a metaphor of the infinity of the individual.
Charles Pétillon, named in various ways each of the images. The photo of the house with balloons is called Souvenirs de Famille, the basketball court Play Station 2, balloons in natural areas Mutation 2, modern house Invasions, and the cellar full of balloons CO2.
