Leandro Erlich (Buenos Aires, 1973) is the author of a work that uses the everyday to generate immersive experiences that alter the perception of reality, and is currently one of the Argentine visual artists with greatest international projection.

Through optical illusion, the artist configures a space that breaks our schemes and opens up endless avenues of interpretation.

Over the last two decades, Leandro Erlich has created a body of sculptures and large installations in which the architectural appearance of the everyday functions as a kind of perceptual trap: it leads the unsuspecting viewer into a visual paradox that defies the assumptions of the order and the rules of the material world. Erlich’s installations threaten our temporal certainties, provoke the viewer by altering his physical reference points and lead him to stupefaction and confusion, forcing him to relativize his position between the real and the artificial, logic and image.
