The performing art of Jan Hakon Erichsen aka balloon destroyer

After talking about David Henry Nobody Jr, we discovered a colleague of his, another artist who uses his body to create fascinating and entertaining artistic performances, Jan Hakon Erichsen.

Jan is originally from Norway, where he studied at the National Academy of Arts in Oslo. Initially attracted by video making, he later dedicated himself body (literally) and soul to the creation of kinetic installations using any type of object that might fall within his grasp, cups, knives, spaghetti. Balloons are almost always present in his performances, coming to define himself as “balloon destroyer“.

His audience, the one of Instagram, immediately loved the videos that see him break objects in cumbersome ways and with devices made by assembling parts in wood and metal.
Jan’s art represents in the best possible way the current of artistic thought according to which the act of destruction is itself an act of creation.

Discover all of Jan Hakon Erichsen’s performances on his Instagram profile and on his YouTube Channel.
