Jason Hackenwerth: Animal Soul
7/11 – 7/15
July 11 - 15
Arts Brookfield has commissioned artist Jason Hackenwerth to create Animal Soul, a set of large-scale, internally lit, inflatable sculptures that will take over the Waterfront Plaza at Brookfield Place this summer.
Hackenwerth’s famous balloon installations have been exhibited by museums around the world including the Guggenheim and the V&A. His Animal Soul sculptures will tower over the viewers at 20 to 30 feet high each and transform the waterfront into a larger-than-life, glowing sculpture garden. Hackenwerth will also create wearable sculptures made entirely of sewn balloons that come to life when donned by dancers.
Animal Soul will sweep viewers into a fantastical world of colorful creatures inspired by the magical, light-hearted persona of balloons and the otherworldly creatures that exist within every imagination.
