In pictures: eye-deceiving Dalston House artwork

  • Comment

A new, illusionary art installation named Dalston House, on show as part of Beyond Barbican and London Festival of Architecture has opened to the public

Designed by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich, the work features the façade of a Victorian terraced house reflected in a huge angled mirror above it.

By sitting, standing or lying on the horizontal surface, visitors appear to be scaling or hanging off the side of the building.

Located on a street near Dalston Junction, the façade resembles the house that would have once stood on the block, which has remained empty since it was bombed during the second world war.

The piece will be on display at 1–7 Ashwin Street, Dalston, E8 3DL until 4 August.
