100,000 giant white balloons invade London’s Covent Garden

The French artist Charles Pétillon filled london’s 19th century Covent Garden market building with a cloud of 100,000 giant white balloons.
The work has been entitled 'Heartbeat' and will remain in Covent Garden until September 27.

“ The balloon invasions I create are metaphors. Their goal is to change the way in which we see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them. With Heartbeat I want to represent the Market Building as the beating heart of this area – connecting its past with the present day to allow visitors to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life. ”
