Balloon Museum

21 March - 1 May 2022

This imaginative museum has become famous for its inflatable creations, including giant works of art and pools of colorful balloons, which have thrilled adults and children alike.

Balloon Museum. Art, Fantasy and Colour

Balloon Museum, Rome

District of Prati Bus (former depot of the Mobility Company in Rome, in Prati)

Art, fantasy and colors combined with the concepts of peace, freedom and equality, this is the intention of the commissioners through a constructive message of environmental protection. The theme of recycling and eco-sustainability is experimented with works created with sustainable and non-harmful materials that emerge from a varied palette of inflatable colors.

The air

The exhibition is spread over 18 rooms in which emerges the representative claim of the exhibition: the air, “ Let’s Fly ”.

Among the most esteemed exponents of “balloon & inflatable art”: Cyril Lancelin , a French visual artist who presents “The Knot” a giant pink inflatable twisted on itself. The Penique Productions collective participates with a huge blue inflatable structure that can be seen from the inside.

“  Canopy ”, the work of Pneuhaus for Bike Powered Events is an interactive inflatable installation with the intention of raising awareness about the issue of proper energy production. The two architects and designers from Motorefisico will present “  Never ending story” , a unique infinity room, and Quiet Ensemble will present “Hypercosmo” , their debut in the Hyper series.

“Lux Eventi”, the host of the show, will present an indoor installation “Montgolfière” a slew of colorful balloons dancing in the air, or “Magic Mushroom” a tribute to the literary and then cinematographic work of Alice in Wonderland .

The fence is an “Out of the blue” tangle of lights , a hide-and-seek place among inflatable structures that will lose the viewer during this strange journey.
