While New York-based Daniel Arsham has been traditionally known for his monochromatic works, his new works in the form of crystalline calcite seek to break that mould in the form of a new cavernous installation.
A byproduct of Arsham’s research in correcting his colorblindness, the large-scale installation is Arsham’s 11th show at New York’s Galerie Perrotin. Drawing on the themes of fragility of human civilization and the nature of time itself, each sculpture in the installation emits a mysterious blue or purple hue.
Through the transformation of materials such as crystal, ash and stone into modern-day items, Arsham’s “Circa 2345” exhibit offers a glimpse into our current culture from the perspective of a future archeological site. Standout pieces in the collection such as a glowing Spalding ball and an intriguing tower of footballs leave much for personal interpretation.
Daniel Arsham’s “Circa 2345” exhibit will be running from September 15 through October 22. If you’re in the area be sure to stop by and check it out!
