At HOW Art Museum in Shanghai, Daniel Arsham crafted new interventions specifically for the space there, further exploring the relationship between architecture and the human form. “Daniel Arsham: Perpetual Present,” running through Oct. 24, offers these recent explorations, among them a portal that moves through several parallel walls. Arsham was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Layering acrylic on transparent sheets, the ghostly work of David Spriggs towers over viewers. The artist places painted subjects inside these creations, from from varying figures to more celestial bodies. A view from behind works such as “In Utero II” shows how the illusionary quality of the installations carries to different perspectives.
Tracey Snelling’s installations are immersive blends of sculpture, video, and photography, her makeshift buildings containing surprises in their windows and corners. Her recent, massive construction at the 58th Venice Biennale reflects on her experiences living in China, in particular. Videos shown within offer peeks into her experiences with friends; structures are inspired by actual places she visited.
