Equal parts celebration and anxiety, Huffing and Puffing is a single-channel video loop in which balloons are inflated by the artist until they burst. This video performance meditates on the fragile and overblown expectations we often set for ourselves.

David Tallis is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist. Employing a conceptual and playfully subversive approach, he works with a wide range of media including video, photography, found objects, and text. His artwork often incorporates contradicting subject matter such as participation and conflict, wasted effort and reward.
