Xingtair first

30 baloons 300 liters, serigraphy print, straps.160 x 90cm, Varying dimensions. Xingtair First is a fake company exporting air from Xintai - Northern China’s most polluted city - to Europe. Each balloon allows the viewer to breathe the same air as Xintai citizens for 60 minutes. This piece is a response to the absurdity of global commerce. Some European and American startups like Vitality Air, were born in 2015 after a pollution peak in China. These companies started to auction air on Ebay, thus making it into a consumer product. However, the majority of Chinese pollution comes from European and American businesses. Clean air is the last luxury left to export. Facing this hypocrisy, Xintair First is a company fighting for justice.
