Leandro Erlich

Date posted: January 20, 2011 Back to the exhibition

On entering a Leandro Erlich installation, the viewer enters a world of trickery and illusion; doors cannot be opened, peepholes reveal the unexpected, mirrors do not reflect and viewers can submerge themselves in a swimming pool without getting wet.

His installations function like puzzling set designs in which the viewer becomes the actor and Erlich the director. Erlich challenges the viewer’s habitual idea of reality by creating an unexpected experience from a familiar environment.

Leandro Erlich was born in Buenos Aries and now lives and works in both Buenos Aires and Paris, having completed his studies in Argentina and a two year residency in Houston, Texas.
