Daniel Arsham‘s latest exhibition titled, 3018, can now be viewed at Galerie Perrotin in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, after the contemporary artist teased the installation with an eroded DeLorean DMC-12 sculpture.

Staying true to Arsham’s signature aesthetic, 3018 depicts his vision of a dystopian future, as modern objects in American pop culture have been reimagined in a future setting through a decaying state.

In addition to the classic DeLorean, a replica of a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California, which was prominently featured in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was produced, donning deterioration across its body and interior, while covered in crystal to exude an ashy gray aesthetic.

Other pieces complementing the series of cars are a pile of junk-yard objects composed of selenite, quartz, pyrite crystal and volcanic ash, in addition to figurines that resemble Mickey Mouse, a teddy bear and a bunny, covered in bags and wrapped in rope that is crafted from white hydrostone plaster, which was inspired by American visual artist Man Ray and his The Enigma of Isidore Ducasse artwork.

Additionally, an entire wall is filled with more of Arsham’s eroded aesthetic, as it reveals a broken wooden structure inside. The visual effect was achieved through an art technique called trompe-l’oeil, with wallpaper designs Arsham made in conjunction with Brooklyn design studio Calico Wallpaper.

Furthermore, another distinct piece is a “FUTURE” sign on the wall that is protruding through the surface, which Arsham formed with a mixture of plaster, foam and white paint. For additional details, head over to Galerie Perrotin’s website, and the official address listed below.

3018 at the Galerie Perrotin in NYC, is open until October 21.
