Mind-Bending Installations by Leandro Erlich

by Danny OldaPosted on

I can only imagine the surprise and disorientation of coming upon a piece created by Leandro Erlich by chance, without warning.  Approaching the work, familiar with the Argentinian born artist, one suddenly becomes suspicious of reality, not so trusting of what your senses are reporting.  Whether it’s a floating windowsill at the end of a ladder, an elevator stuck between floors in the middle of an art gallery, or a seemingly filled pool that allows viewers to walk around and within it, Erlich uses preconceptions of space to turn expectations on their head.  Erlich has been creating such artwork since the late 1990′s, these four installations just a small sampling of his mind-bending practice.
