The current exhibition at our local Gallery is by artist Max Streicher.
Many of his installations feature inflatable figures sewn from lightweight fabrics that allow movement. The arms and legs of these big people move with the wind, and their heads bob constantly.
His bio says "Using industrial fans and simple valve mechanisms to animate sewn forms with life-like gestures, the large-scale works hint at enchantment, fantasy and optimism while they are intended to overwhelm."
They are definitely overwhelming. It's a little disconcerting to look up and suddenly notice these giants tethered to the roof.
