Brazilian character designer and illustrator Tartaruga Feliz, alongside curator Renata Har, are proud to invite you to "Balloons", a balloon character fiesta at the Aviatrix Atelier, in Neukölln.
Tartaruga displayed nine cool photographs, one amazing interactive installation, a brilliant video and some well kept surprises. “The balloons are my true companions and keep my feet on the ground”, she says.
Each of the balloons has a characteristic personality. Some are incredibly shy, others are just plainly out there, ready to blow up.
“Tartaruga uses simple and unpretentious elements to build up strong facial expressions. It is absolutely magical to see how they come to life”, explains Renata, the show’s curator.
Aviatrix Atelier had the perfect setting to host the exhibition. The mini-kino was installed under a wooden mezzanine, whilst the photos were displayed alongside the interactive show. This is where one of the balloons, whose talent is to basically enjoy life, answered questions from the audience with wise pieces of advice.
