For the 2018 Art Series, Jihan Zencirli installed thousands of compostable, biodegradable balloons in a series of installations.

Her largest project to date, the balloons ranged in size from ten inches to ten feet, and lived inside NYCB’s home at Lincoln Center.

NYCB Art Series Presents: Jihan Zencirli aka GERONIMO

Jihan Zencirli aka GERONIMO joins New York City Ballet for the sixth presentation of Art Series, which welcomes contemporary artists to our Lincoln Center home.

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."
