Dalston House – Leandro Erlich

Commissioned by the Barbican, Argentine artist (architect and bona-fide illusionist) Leandro Erlich has created a fun and interactive installation in East London. You’d be forgiven for thinking you have stumbled across a theatre set, with a huge life like facade of a Victorian House stretched across the floor. Visitors are invited to crawl, lay horizontally and generally get themselves into hilarious positions on the piece. The giant mirror propelled 45 degrees above the facade allows you to create situations of danger such as hanging a baby of the windowsill or doing handstands above the door resulting in a good old laugh. It’s the type of art anybody and everybody can enjoy! The only downside being is that you’re only allowed 5 minutes at a time on the piece so make sure you get your moves ready!

The site is free to attend and is family friendly – perfect for a quirky outing on a hot summer’s day. Click here for more info.
