Leandro Erlich: bâtiment at le centquatre

On display until 4 march 2012 is ‘Bâtiment’ by argentinian artist Leandro Erlich, a large-scale installation consisting of a mock-up building facade turned on its side and a multi-storey mirror. exhibiting as a part of Le Centquatre’s group show ‘in_perception’ in Paris, France, the piece allows visitors to view themselves in a gravity-defying illusion where they are hanging off the elevation of a four-level house. the work aims to challenge and skew the viewer’s comprehension of reality by using mundane elements of urban life that have slipped into the unconscious of the public.
