T.Y.F.F.S.H. 2011

Images of Kris Martin, T.Y.F.F.S.H.


Kris Martin uses common objects, large and small, to produce new meaning or possibilities. Here, he offers the fantasy of a marooned hot air balloon that has mysteriously landed in the museum, at the same time creating a psychedelic fun house that can adapt to any sized space.

The title of this piece comes from the name of the German gallery, Sies + Höke, where it was first shown. Playing on the language of airline promotions, it stands for “Thank you for flying Sies + Höke.”
