Cherophobia is a 48-hour durational living installation by Noëmi Lakmaier. It is an attempt to lift the artist’s bound and immobilised body off the ground using 20,000 helium party balloons. It is a performance and a gathering, intertwining people in their shared suspense and anticipation.
Imagination and Potential is a publication about Cherophobia published in collaboration with LADA and written by Mary Paterson. Imagination and Potential explores the proposition presented by the incredible task of suspending a body from helium balloons, the relationship between the performer and the space, the object and the viewer, the possible and the impossible. The publication is designed by Hannah Ellis, with photos by Grace Gelder and pinhole images by Tina Rowe.
