Dalston-House

Argentine artist Leandro Erlich has been commissioned by the Barbican to install a brilliant optical illusion that makes everyone look like Spider-Man. Using a former bomb site in East London Erlich has erected a huge wall of mirrors at a 45-degree angle over a life-sized horizontal reproduction of a Victorian terraced house. Entitled Dalston House, visitors are encouraged to ‘climb’ around the installation making it appear as though they are defying gravity. The installation is free to visit and is open until 4th August.
