Daniel Arsham at Galerie Perrotin
Daniel Arsham opens his first solo exhibition in new york at Galerie Perrotin, featuring a milieu of sculptural pieces along with an immersive, large scale installation. The engaging sequence of artwork presented as part of the exhibit ‘CIRCA 2345′ reflects themes that relate to the fragility of human civilization and the ephemeral nature of time – common threads throughout Arsham’s overall oeuvre.

On the first floor of Galerie Perrotin, Arsham presents a selection of new works made this year, such as ‘blue calcite basketball jersey’, ‘blue calcite basketball tower’, and ‘blue calcite bulls jacket’. By working in this medium of crystalline calcite, each sculpture emits an intense blue hue. This breakthrough use of color comes as a departure from Arsham’s previous projects, which have been almost exclusively exhibited in black and white. This artistic expansion is the byproduct of his research and results into correcting his inherent colorblindness. For ‘circa 2345′, Arsham introduces color in his sculptural work, as well as a combination of different elements, for the very first time.

On the lower floor of the gallery, visitors encounter a cavernous, immersive architectural installation that continues arsham’s previous investigation of archaeology, fiction and time. By transforming elemental materials such as stone, crystal and ash into cultural artifacts, Arsham offers a glimpse into our current culture, viewed from the perspective of an archeological site in the faraway future – from which the exhibition draws its name.
