Swimming Pool - Leandro Erlich
Leandro Erlich is known for pushing the boundaries of what is real and what is etherial. His dream-like approaches to art question our perceptions and understanding of what we take for granted. Erlich conceived this installation in 1999, and have since then played with the minds of thousands of visitors. This piece allows visitors to stand within a fully built swimming pool with all their clothes on, looking up at other (confused) visitors looking down. From below, it looks like the whole world before them is under water. Through the use of a thin glass and running water on top of it, Erlich has created an experience that spark imaginations and curiosity.
Today this installation is a part of the permanent collection at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. Images from here
