“Changing rooms”
Leandro Erlich

As with Estuaire 2009, the Hôtel de Région was hosting an existing work by an artist also invited to create a specific piece for Le Voyage à Nantes event. This year, visitors will discover Changing Rooms, a work by the Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich, who is also behind the monumental Monte-meubles on Place du Bouffay.

The main theme of Leandro Erlich’s installations is to question and problematize our perception of reality. Faithfully re-enacting domestic interiors or walkways, they suddenly spark a moment of doubt: through the subtle play of mirrors, false bottoms, or trompe-l’œil’s, spaces are deconstructed and multiplied.

With Changing rooms, the artist is offering, once again, a physical and visual experience using a mundane space encountered in everyday life: a fitting room. By entering these fitting rooms, the visitor crosses the border between reality and fiction and is projected into a familiar-looking world where, nevertheless, nothing resembles his/her own lived experience. They find themselves in a dream-like state of limbo, a point of junction between the conscious and unconscious.
