"Two Different Tomorrows" (installation view)
Leandro Erlich at Sean Kelly Gallery.
Opening reception September 9th, 6pm-8pm.
From the press release:
Confounding logic and defying the laws of physics, Two Different Tomorrows presents us with multiple scenes: a maze of elevator banks becomes a tunnel of reflection; an elevator stuck between floors invokes an impossible space; and a working elevator door provides a portal to another world, opening and closing to reveal people filmed in an actual elevator in Tokyo.
The largest of the works is a 50-foot long elevator shaft turned on its horizontal axis. Instead of plunging down the elevator shaft, viewers will walk down the “side” of the interior wall towards the elevator car. As viewers pass horizontally through a vertical passageway, they will find themselves deposited into the main gallery, unsure of which end is up.
Um, file under: This looks awesome.
