The Argentine conceptual artist reminds us that imagination can transform reality into art.
Erlich does not challenge the public to find meaning in his work but entices them with imagery that leaves them receptive to multiple perspectives.
I was reminded yesterday afternoon, while walking through mazes of pop-up galleries, tent-like hallways, magazine stands and oddly placed sculptures just asking to be tripped over, that the contemporary wing of the Armory Show — which runs through Sunday at Piers 92 and 94 — means different things to different people.
LOS ANGELES — Ever wanted to take a roller coaster through Buenos Aires? How about an invisible one? Yeah, me too. Argentinian film director Fernando Livschitz has released a new video of roller coasters cutting through the lovely streets of the country’s capital.
Online we encounter more information than ever, but we also lose a hell of a lot. On May 3, the blog WeLoveViral posted a photos and a video titled “Swimming Pool Illusion.” The YouTube video embedded in the post is titled “Amazing Japanese Fake Pool” and has been viewed (as of today) 6,211,210 times!
The problem is that the pool is question is neither a pool, nor Japanese. In fact, it is an artwork by Argentinean artist Leandro Erlich titled “Swimming Pool” (2008).
