Leandro Erlich: Construction of Reality
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.
