Resembling a theatre set, the detailed facade of a Victorian terraced house – recalling those that once stood on the street – lies horizontally on the ground with mirrors positioned overhead. The reflections of visitors give the impression they are standing on, suspended from, or scaling the building vertically.

Sited on a vacant lot on Ashwin Street, Erlich will design and decorate the façade to resemble the houses that previously stood on the block. Erlich’s installation will be accompanied by talks, workshops and live performances, exploring themes related to the project, including architectural history, urbanism, and perception, which will be developed in collaboration with local organisations.


Mon–Wed: 11am– 6pm
Thu & Fri:11am–8pm
Sat & Sun: 10am–8pm

Please note that Dalston House will close at 7pm on Thu 11 Jul and Thu 1 Aug for the events taking place onsite.

We recommend joining the queue at least one hour before closing time, although you may have to arrive earlier during busier periods. Please follow @dalstonhouse for real time updates.
