Heartbeat by Charles Pétillon

 

After wandering round Soho and indulging in some me time, I still had some time to spare before meeting my dinner date so decided to be a little cultured and explore Heartbeat by Charles Pétillon, right in the heart of Covent Garden Square.

There are 100,000 balloons (!) suspend from the roof in the Market Building, along with pulsating light which mimics the movement of a heartbeat.

Charles Pétillon wanted to mimic the fact that Covent Garden Market has been so central to this area of London, as well as its history and energy.

It was mesmerising to stand and watch the light change, especially whilst being able to listen to the string quintet playing from the basement below.

There’s something so soft, welcoming and incredibly beautiful about the exhibition. Covent Garden has long been one of my favourite areas of London and I loved seeing it celebrated in such a wonderful way.

It’s 54m long and 12m wide so there’s plenty of space to view, photograph and admire.

We headed back after dinner to see the exhibition again in a different light, and it was even more spectacular.

I’ll leave you with this series of photographs…
