Location of Exhibition Event
Residence of the artist
White canvas, ballons, camera, speaker and television, metal brush, and fuse
3.5 x 3 x 2.8 m
In a small area enclosed by white canvas, LIANG Juhui inflates the massive ballons with his own exhalation from the previous INhalation of the fresh air in the room. The ballons thus are charged with respired, carbon-dioxide-ful air after inflation. Music from the speaker is played with the task progressing. After the artist finish blowing the ballons -- and when he is exhausted by the act of air-infusion -- LIANG Juhui then puntures the inflated ballons with sharp objects, which leads to the explosion of them. This artwork alludes to LIANG Juhui long established concerns for the environment. The circulation of the air (oxygen -> carbon-dioxide) also symbolizes the circle of life (generation and degeneration).
