Artist and designer Daniel Arsham currently has his first show in Russia at Moscow with “Moving Architecture” at VHDNKh. His nine site-specific “architectural interventions” bring surreal, three-dimensional touches to otherwise nondescript spaces. The photographs showing Arsham’s work in this piece were taken by James Law. Arsham was last mentioned on HiFructose.com here.
Daniel Arsham toys with our notions of what to expect from various materials and media, transcending the boundaries between art, architecture and performance. In so doing, he explores what is natural, what is fabricated, what has come about by chance and what is planned. The Brooklyn based artist is best known for the wit of his sculptures and stage settings, created using materials like minerals, crushed glass and volcanic ash, previously featured here on our blog. His manner of creating works out of shattered, ruined material causes them to be reformed into what he describes as “objects with purpose.”
It’s the year 2045. The climate is changing, causing a dramatic rise and fall of sea levels and violent storms at alarming rates. This is artist Daniel Arsham’s vision of the future as he presents it in his film series, “Future Relic”, the 4th installment of which debuted at the Miami Beach EDITION hotel last week. The Brooklyn based artist is best known for the wit of his sculptures and stage settings, created using materials like minerals and volcanic ash, and his art has been a fixture in the Miami fairs. “Future Relic 04” is a continuation of Arsham’s latest venture into cinema, a segmented film that will be released as a full-length feature in 2017.
Last night, sculptor Daniel Arsham celebrated a return to his hometown of Miami with his installation, “Welcome to the Future” at Locust Projects. The project was successfully funded by Kickstarter and donations to create an original, site specific experience to Miami. Although an apocalyptic glimpse into our future, the piece is inspired by Arsham’s past- his survival of Hurricane Andrew in the 1990s.
