Le­an­dro Er­lich: Con­struc­tion of Re­al­ity

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

A solo ex­hi­bi­tion by Ar­gen­tine artist Le­an­dro Er­lich brings to­gether over 30 art­works cov­er­ing his large-scale in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tions, zin­stal­la­tions, and pho­tog­ra­phy, in­clud­ing 13 mon­u­men­tal in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tions that of­fer the au­di­ences un­canny ex­pe­ri­ences via op­ti­cal il­lu­sions. By trans­form­ing the ar­chi­tec­tural spa­ces through jar­ring re­flec­tions and fas­ci­nat­ing labyrinths that dis­rupt the viewers’ sense of bal­ance and ori­en­ta­tion, the artist in­vites us to ques­tion our nor­mal per­cep­tion of ev­ery­day ex­pe­ri­ence. This ex­hi­bi­tion un­folds the com­plex du­al­ity that char­ac­ter­izes Er­lich’s artis­tic ap­proach: by way of in­ves­ti­gat­ing the ephemeral, il­lu­sive as­pect of the vis­ual world, he recre­ates or even re­verses the given logic of ar­chi­tec­tural space. For this solo show Er­lich will present the most re­cent ver­sion of his se­ries Re­flec­tive Op­ti­cal Il­lu­sion Build­ing, a new in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tion in res­o­nance with the his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural land­scape of Shang­hai. Trained as an ar­chi­tect, Er­lich is known for his ex­trav­a­gant imag­i­na­tion and unique ma­nip­u­la­tions of mir­rors, pro­jec­tions, and ar­chi­tec­tural spa­ces with which he recre­ates and rep­re­sents re­al­ity in sur­real ways.
