Internationally known for his captivating, three-dimensional visual illusions, Argentine artist Leandro Erlich has been commissioned by the Barbican to create a new installation in Dalston.

About

Resembling a movie set, the detailed facade of a Victorian terraced house — recalling those that once stood on the street — lies horizontally on the ground with mirrors positioned overhead. The reflections of visitors give the impression they are standing on, suspended from, or scaling the building vertically. Sited on a vacant lot on Ashwin Street, Erlich will design and decorate the façade to resemble the houses that previously stood on the block. Erlich's installation will be accompanied by talks, workshops and live performances, exploring themes related to the project, including architectural history, urbanism, and perception, which will be developed in collaboration with local organisations. The Barbican is an Official Festival Partner of the London Festival of Architecture 2013 Supported by the Embassy of the Argentine Republic Part of Beyond Barbican
