leandro erlich

Yes. I really really want to dangle myself from one of those pretty french balconies… from the safety of the floor! Leandro Erlich is an amazing installation artist from Argentina. I may have to post about him again next week because there is just so much insanely amazing stuff in his portfolio… but for today, let’s concentrate on this beauty, shall we? This work, titled Bâtiment, is not new {2004 I believe} but I’m still in complete awe. This facade was placed on the floor {at a group show in Paris}, with a huge mirror positioned above it at a 45 degree angle resulting in this gorgeous/death defying illusion! That’s right kids, don’t try this at home… unless you have a fake facade and a great big mirror.

Happy weekend : )

    OMG! I can’t believe I have been in there and now you’re making a post about it!
    This installation is in an old electricity factory that was renovated and now the building works as an art museum, in Buenos Aires.

    We had one in London last summer, it was amazing, so fun. I didn’t get a go as there were massive queues but it was great to watch.

    [...] from the Web (1) Incredible piece of installation art from Leandro Erlich, entitled Bâtiment.  (2) I love the idea of a giant piece of oversized colorwashed art. Truly makes a statement.  [...]
