AgainG (AgainGallery) will feature Daisy Balloon’s Balance Exhibition Vol. 2 from May 28th, 2022 to March 26th, 2022.
This will be part two of the EQUILÍBRIO (Balance) Exhibition held at Japan House Sao Paulo from September 28th to November 28th and also the grand opening exhibition for gallery AgainG.
We have chosen the cycle and balance of the natural environment as the theme of our work. As a whole, this installation represents the process of nature, and the lights reflecting from the balloons are a representation of nature’s wisdom. As visitors walk through the exhibition, the air flow they create will cause the balloons to rotate slowly, emitting more rays of light to cross paths. This is an expression of how humans have different perspectives of the world based on their cultures and backgrounds and the growing diversity of what we can learn from nature. The mixing of these elements will lead to greater hope.
Our planet is said to be 4.5 billion years old, and all existence continues to learn from nature and evolve. In today’s world where balance is being destroyed, it is our belief that humans have much to learn from nature. We hope this exhibition will be an opportunity to think about nature’s wisdom and be a starting point for greater communication.
The holographic balloons used in this work produce an aurora-like effect when refraction causes light particles to form. When we first started using this material, our work was focused on how the surface colors changed from different angles. However, while exploring our work one day amidst the COVID pandemic, sunlight happened to shine through and illuminate the balloons. As the sunlight hit the curves and junctions of the balloons, it caused the surface colors to rise up into an external veil of colors. In this moment of calm after having been liberated from all thought, I felt as though the light was a reminder to reflect deeply on my inner conscience and restore the balance which had become biased by society.
