Reflective Balloons on View at NYC’s Lincoln Center by Geronimo

Balloon Tunnels
Lincoln Center

BALLOON tunnels of dreams! The best news is you can touch all the balloons! Part of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the David H. Koch Theater is home to some of New York City’s most established dance and opera companies.


Beyond the world-renowned performances that take place there, the theater also presents stunning works of public art. The latest installation, on view until February 25, is New York and Los Angeles-based artist Jihan Zencirli Geronimo’s 5 Domesa shimmering balloon installation, produced in collaboration with the New York City Ballet.

Jihan Zencirli installed thousands of compostable, biodegradable balloons in a series of installations in January and February – her largest project to date. The balloons ranged in size from ten inches to ten feet, and lives inside NYCB’s home at Lincoln Center.

Jihan Zencirli is a Turkish American visual artist, experiential writer and performance artist, creating under the moniker GERONIMO. Her interest lies in creating emotional and physical spaces that can break up the monotony of a day, connecting us to one another and bringing joy. She is most notable for her internationally regarded ephemeral sculptures located in public spaces, massive in scale and scope, and designed to be democratic in their availability. As Zencirli explains, “Balloons are only for a moment. They disappear and vanish. So rooted in my work is this reminder that you will only have this experience at this particular time. You’re here, you’re seeing it, you’re alive.”
