Illusion


Ever wanted to walk on the wall like a fly? Ever imagined yourself spectacularly escaping from a dangerous (but romantic) situation by hanging with one hand on the edge of a balcony?

This is exactly what you can do if you visit Leandro Ehrlich’s installations. A recurring theme in the Argentinian artist’s work is to have people experience spaces from a different perspective, as if defying the laws of physics.
This time he constructed whole facades lying on the ground and put huge, nearly vertical mirrors next to it. The illusion and the fun is assured. I found a beautiful and a short but hilarious video of the installation.

The installation brings to my mind the wonderful pictures of Jan von Holleben.
