London-based artist Martin Creed is primarily known for his balloon installations—large scale, interactive affairs where whole rooms or areas are filled with giant, latex balloons you have to fight your way through. He recently worked with Victoria Beckham on her Dover Street store's one year anniversary, and often collaborates with the fashion industry.
Now he's bringing his work stateside via an exhibit called 'The Back Door' at the Park Avenue Armory. The show takes up the whole first floor of the massive building, but it is his balloon room that is the real standout. Enter through sliding doors and you find yourself in a smallish space packed with white balloons, just like Alice stepping through the looking glass.
