Martin Creed, Work No. 2592 at Gavin Brown, NYC

Don’t be fooled—this balloon-filled room is not a tribute to Nena’s classic hit, “99 Red Balloons”.  It is, however, an interactive art installation, “Work No. 2592” by Martin Creed, a British artist and Turner prize-winner, which is open for some child-like revelry, for adults and children alike.

Yep, it’s a ball pit for adults, but it is also a serious, very smart sculpture where Creed uses air to create the sculpture and allows the “viewer” to enter the sculpture and not just stand outside the work, viewing it externally!

This is the latest of Creed’s truly wonderful series of works also titled Half the Air in a Given Space, a brilliant work that keeps on giving.
