daniel arsham’s recently-opened ‘time dilation’ exhibition at galerie perrotin new york is on view until february 20, 2021. the exhibition introduces visitors to a range of arsham’s practice with several new bodies of work alongside the artist’s continued exploration of his signature sculptures cast in geological materials. the later includes his series of emblematic classical statues, drawn from his collaboration with the réunion des musées nationaux — grand palais (also featured in the exhibition ‘moonraker’ at the musée guimet – see more on designboom here). the statues are displayed alongside eroded pokémon figures, which mark the first major collaboration between a contemporary artist and the pokémon company.daniel arsham exhibits eroded classical sculptures alongside pokémon at perrotin new york

 

 

‘time dilation’ also includes arsham’s recently-completed monochromatic paintings, which depict natural landscapes inhabited by classical figures. finally, the artist’s new resin works are also on display. resin elements such as magazines, cameras, and videotapes compose intricate arrangements enhanced by the use of transparency and gradient color.daniel arsham exhibits eroded classical sculptures alongside pokémon at perrotin new yorkdaniel arsham exhibits eroded classical sculptures alongside pokémon at perrotin new yorkdaniel arsham, ‘rose quartz eroded bust of pericles’, 2020. 63.5 × 24.1 × 32.1 cm | 25 × 9 1/2 × 12 5/8 inch, rose quartz, quartz, hydrostonedaniel arsham exhibits eroded classical sculptures alongside pokémon at perrotin new york daniel arsham, ‘quartz crystallized seated pikachu’, 2019 – 2020. 50.8 × 50.8 × 55.9 cm | 20 × 20 × 22 inch, quartz, selenite, hydrostonedaniel arsham exhibits eroded classical sculptures alongside pokémon at perrotin new yorkdaniel arsham exhibits eroded classical sculptures alongside pokémon at perrotin new yorkdaniel arsham, ‘bronze eroded bust of zeus’, 2020, 213.4 × 137.2 × 137.2 cm | 7 × 4.5 × 4.5 ft, bronze, patina, polished stainless steeldaniel arsham exhibits eroded classical sculptures alongside pokémon at perrotin new york
