Christian Eisenberger has made a name for himself over the last few years through his performative interventions in the public sphere. Cardboard objects and figures or the artist himself, dressed up as a clown with an explosive belt, melted away into the urban background as quickly as they had appeared.

In all his activities Eisenberger plays down his role as author. His art, minimal and partly self-effacing though his ephemeral interventions may be, nevertheless resembles the proverbial spanner in the works. Public space plays the same role for Eisenberger as the canvas for the traditional painter. TRIENNALE LINZ has asked Eisenberger to turn this potential to the utilisation of the »Freiraum«, the empty spaces of the LENTOS building. His idea, which is as simple as it gets and at the same time a stroke of genius, envisages filling the empty spaces: they will be occupied for the duration of the exhibition by a balloon filled with hot air. The balloon provides a highly irritating sight. A flying object, known to most of us as no more than a dot in the sky, is deprived of its only real function – being up in the air –, becomes sedentary and reveals itself as utterly approachable. It is an object that combines flagrant contradictions. The balloon, at the end of its voyage, blows up the museum building or at least that is what the visual effect seems to suggest.
