Leandro Erlich is an artist, but sometimes his works would lead you to think that he could also be a scenographer or an architect of uncertainty. His work hinges itself on the “trompe-œil”, embodying this in all its meanings through his meticulous attention to detail and commitment to the surprise. He pays the utmost care and attention to the aesthetic aspect of his work while always revealing his tricks.
Erlich’s works play with images and motifs that are recognisable to our everyday lives and he uses their context as a stage for creating a fictional world that is obtained through psychological subversions of shared, public and familiar spaces. The visceral sensations of body-displacement and dislocation are a reminder that the perceptual world that surrounds us is far more fragile and temporary than we believe. Crucial to this suspension of disbelief is the viewer and the interaction of the spectator. Erlich manages to capture his audience through his child-like imagination that manages to affront themes and issues that are profoundly touching to contemporary man.
