Leandro Erlich – Swimming Pool

Leandro Erlich - Swimming Pool

The idea for “Swimming Pool” by Leandro Erlich was first conceived in 1998 while the artist was in residence in Houston as part of the Core program. Since then, it was featured at the Venice Biennale and has found a home as part of the permanent collection at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan.
It can’t always be this way. The subjective nature of Art offers choice to an audience. When encountering artwork the basic questions of yes, no and maybe are all viable options to each viewer on a personal level. In the rare case of “Swimming Pool” only the affirmative exists. Whether you’re breathing freely in the deep end or witnessing the impossible submerged gathering from above you stop, you smile, you think… yes.
