HOT AIR: An inflatable exhibition brought to you by Bad Art

Egle Zvirblyte @egle_zvirblyte

Hot Air seeks to explore both the playfully innocent and darker underworld of the blow-up. While momentarily buoyant, inevitably these are fleeting pleasures, transient and flimsy. Swipe left, single-use plastic. The clinical distance of art on white-wall explodes before viewers who are thrust into an immersive experience.

The inflatable object is an image of temporary joy. From innocent play sessions to a cross-section of darkroom corners, the pleasure derived from an inflatable could be anything from the simple joy of a helium balloon unicorn to the fetishistic delight of a creaking sex doll.

Ant Hamlyn  @anthamlyn

The space will be teeming with these inflatable creations, physically dominating the space and overwhelming the viewer, forcing themselves and their presence into any available space. Potentially over-expressing the possibly fruitless labour of inflating empty objects, only to have them deflated, packed up and stuffed into your pre-specified easy jet format, carry- on luggage and go home.

Ant Hamlyn  @anthamlyn

In its critique, Hot Air is literally mostly empty space – a satire of the vacuousness of much of art world pretentiousness.

Bruce Asbestos @bruceasbestos

It feels more appropriate than ever to push for art community and connectivity on an international scale after a year of isolation and restrictions. Inflatables can gently (and cheaply) float across the borders into London!
