Leandro Erlich + Dalston House

Barbican Art Center’s Dalston Mill site in London presents their Dalston House – a mirror “house” that gives visitors the spine-tingling sensation that they are scaling the side of a building sans safety harness. The house was conceived by Argentine artist Leandro Erlich, who is known for creating similar somersaulting feats of art – a pool that entombed would-be bathers without getting them wet and re-created a blue summer sky inside a gallery. But for the Barbican show, Erlich attracts a British audience, reproducing the weathered brick shell of erstwhile London housing stock completed with vivid building details. Although the structure doesn’t stand erect on its own, it rests flat on the ground and a mirrored plane is suspended overhead at a 45-degree angle reflecting the gravity-defiant antics unfolding below it. The Dalston House is free to the public through Aug 4th. So Scout Life.
