More from the ballet on the exhibit:

Zencirli is a visual artist, experiential writer and performance artist Her interest lies in creating emotional and physical spaces that can break up the monotony of a day, connecting us to one another and bringing joy. She is most notable for her internationally regarded ephemeral sculptures located in public spaces, massive in scale and scope, and designed to be democratic in their availability.

As Zencirli explains, "Balloons are only for a moment. They disappear and vanish. So rooted in my work is this reminder that you will only have this experience at this particular time. You’re here, you’re seeing it, you’re alive."
