The French artist Charles Pétillon has put together many-many balloons to form Heartbeat. As a matter of fact, this seems to be his first public art installation in a public space, which fills the South Hall of the Grade II-listed Victorian Market Building.

Covent Garden is one of the most distinct and vibrant estates in London, as it is now home to Chanel, Dior, Balthazar and Ivy Market Grill and has recently unveiled some of the finest residential properties in London. Covent Garden has commissioned French artist Charles Pétillon, who is famous for his playful balloon ‘invasions’.

Charles Pétillon joins a distinguished roll call of artists and designers to exhibit public work in Covent Garden’s Piazza. Eminent predecessors include Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Alex Chinneck, Paul Cocksedge, Banksy, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Martha Fiennes as well as previous partnerships with the Tate Modern.
