“SOUS LE CIEL” BY LEANDRO ERLICH

EVENT: LEANDRO ERLICH’S CARTE BLANCHE EXHIBITION FROM 12 JANUARY TO 18 FEBRUARY

From 12 January, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche is giving the artist Leandro Erlich carte blanche. With the title “Sous le ciel” (Under the sky), his exhibition pays tribute to the famous Paris sky and invites the visitor to take a fresh look at their surroundings. With its surprising installations, which were made exclusively for Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, it manages to change our perception of the spaces inside the most iconic Parisian store. A romance which he has written in his own way, in several chapters; it begins in the store’s windows, where light and fluffy shapes float in the air like real clouds. Then, inside the store, the nimbus and cumulus clouds journey continues, and they spread out at the top of the central glass domes. And, as if it has been taken from a fantasy tale, the emblematic escalator at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche takes the customers who step onto it to a place where reality and dreams merge into one another. Finally, if visitors prefer to take the lifts, Leandro Erlich has been shaking things up there too, by playing on appearances that can sometimes be deceiving.

"Shaking up perceptions of the environment is not an aim in itself; rather, I would like the audience to ask themselves if what they are looking at is real or not. Unlike illusionists, I like to show the strings, reveal the special effects." Leandro Erlich
