Description

Playful inventions is an overview of 50 years of work, compiled from an archive of photos, press releases, comments, newspaper clippings and memories. Theo Botschuijver’s “aerial art” was photogenic, temporary, usually invited participation and was sometimes subversive. For years Botschuijver produced a large collection of inflatable objects, attractions, sculptures and installations.

He made playful spaces, objects for events that created sensations with a participatory role for the spectators. In addition to air, he often used light and optical effects, but also digital media and unusual projection techniques and laser light.

His “inventions” for bands like Pink Floyd and Genesis are legendary.
