Argentina's Leandro Erlich is shaking up the art world with his wonderful world of illusions.The 44-year-old conceptual artist divides his time between his hometown Buenos Aires and Montevideo, the very livable capital of neighboring Uruguay.In his dream factory – a three-story studio in the Villa Crespo residential area of Buenos Aires shielded from the road by a giant metal barrier – Erlich creates his giant installations, which have earned cult status in London, Paris and New York."Elevator Maze," a matrix of elevator banks, confuses patrons when they don't see their own reflection in the mirror.Visitors are thrilled, confused, annoyed or experience an emotion somewhere in between – but they are never indifferent.In Buenos Aires, many remember when he made the tip of the obelisk vanish in 2015 .In "Building," visitors placed themselves on a building facade installed on the ground but reflected in a mirror to the side.
