7 Stunden Ballonarbiet/7 Hour Balloon Work

by Michaela Gleave

7 Stunden Ballonarbiet/7 Hour Balloon Work documents a live video performance that was streamed via Skype between Berlin and Sydney on 10 August 2010. For seven hours artist Michaela Gleave sat in her studio in Berlin continuously blowing up balloons, gradually filling the space until she buried herself under her labours. At the completion of the performance the artist popped all the balloons and left the room.

Now at the Bondi Pavilion, Gleave revisits 7 Stunden Ballonarbiet/ 7 Hour Balloon Work through projecting archival footage edited and re-mastered down to 17 minutes in an almost comical condensation of time, into the gallery space amid a sea of coloured balloons. Contrary to the original performance, the audience will be allowed to play in the balloons.
