Master of illusion Leandro Erlich first graced It’s Nice That last year with his Parisian façade and now he’s back for more fun – with a project just round the corner in east London!
The huge three-dimensional installation Dalston House, which sits on the foundations of a Victorian house destroyed by bombing in the Second World War, is composed of the detailed façade which once stood there lying horizontally on the ground, and an enormous mirror hanging at a 45 degree angle overhead. The resulting illusion – that visitors to the exhibition are either scaling or dangling precariously from the building – can only provide hours of amusement to visitors, as they while away their days choreographing elaborate new poses to recreate with their friends; pretending to be Wendy and the Lost Boys flying through Neverland, or a cunning burglar abseiling niftily down the front of the house from the master bedroom. Interactive art at its simplest, and best.
