Leandro Erlich to Inaugurate New Series of Exhibitions at Museum of Latin American Art
LONG BEACH, CA.- MOLAA’s new series of exhibitions in the Project Room are devoted to projects by the most cutting edge, experimental and contemporary artists in Latin America today. The first exhibition in the series, "The Lost Garden", is by Argentinean artist Leandro Erlich (b.1973).

Erlich is one of today’s most inventive artists in the international art scene. He creates unique installations which are mostly architectonic and which recreate familiar spaces and structures that transform our perception of the real world. With the combination of constructions that range from rooms, buildings, windows or doors, and the use of mirrors, the artist constructs multiple, impossible perspectives which result in disconcerting, unexpected and playful games of visual illusion.

Erlich suggests other ways of “seeing” and experiencing the known beyond the limitations of the triteness of the repetition of daily existence, where things are given as known entities and no mystery exists. Erlich’s Project Room exhibition, an installation called "The Lost Garden", is an enclosed triangular construction which contains a garden. Even though spectators are aware of the limited dimensions of architectural structure, when they look inside, the garden is infinite in size. The artist describes it in the following manner: “My work, The Lost Garden, aspires to create depth within the banal experience of everyday spaces.”

Since 2000, Erlich has participated in many important international biennials such as the Whitney Biennial (2001), the Venice Biennale (2001 and 2005) and the Bienal de Sao Paulo (2004). His work is represented in important private and public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires; Tate Modern, London; MACRO, Rome; and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville, Paris.

The exhibition is organized by MOLAA, curated by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill.
