You might remember Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich from his spectacular installation Dalston House earlier in the year, where visitors hung from windows, skated window sills and scaled the facade of a house that laid horizontally in front of the foundations of a Victorian house destroyed by bombing in the Second World War. Or perhaps you know him for his illusory corridors, lift shafts or his swimming pool galleries where art-goers are permanently submerged beneath the surface.
So perhaps this work will be less of a surprise, but if you can resist gawping at this next installation, nothing will impress you. Taking the centre square of Nantes, France as his exhibition space, Leandro has moved in Monte-meubles – L’ultime déménagement, The Furniture Lift. This extraordinary work is yet one more illusion to add to the collection, seeing the corner of a room suspended as though having abandoned the rest of its house with brickwork revealed and floorboards gaping at the joists. Created for the biannual Le Voyage a Nantes that sees the entire city of Nantes transformed into an art gallery, Leandro’s installation stood an terrifying 30 feet high, supported by a ladder alone. Appearing to float independently, let’s go with superstition and say that is one ladder you definitely would not want to walk underneath but admire, from a comfortable distance.
