Internationally known for his captivating, three-dimensional visual illusions, Argentine artist Leandro Erlich has been commissioned by the Barbican to create a new installation in Dalston.

The huge three-dimensional installation Dalston House, which sits on the foundations of a Victorian house destroyed by bombing in the Second World War, is composed of the detailed façade which once stood there lying horizontally on the ground, and an enormous mirror hanging at a 45 degree angle overhead. The reflections of visitors give the impression they are standing on, suspended from, or scaling the building vertically.
