    With a noteworthy career spanning over a decade, New-York based artist Daniel Arsham has established a name for himself that exceeds any niche or discipline, touching each end of the art world spectrum. In thought-provoking and eye-catching work, Arsham has masterminded a multidisciplinary practice that exists in between art, architecture, and performance. Unpacking the world we live in through a range of mediums, the one thread that ties his work together is that of inevitably - that objects in the present reflect ideas from the past, and are destined to be transformed by the future. Renown for creating ‘future relics’ in his practice, Arsham also explores dichotomies between reality and fiction, as well as destruction and creation.

    As the first limited edition artwork based on his Architectural Anomaly series, the present lot portrays the likeness of a figure shrouded in blown fabric, revealed to be empty when viewed from behind. The larger version of which this iteration is scaled from has playfully deceived viewers globally, in museums such as The Fabric Workshop Museum in Philadelphia (2012), Carré d’Art de Nîmes, France (2009), and Museu Oi Futuro Rio de Jainero, Brazil (2017).

    Arsham has been honoured with solo exhibitions around the world, including most recently at the HOW Art Museum, Shanghai (2019). The past couple of years have also seen Arsham exhibit at venues including Galerie Ron Mandos, Amsterdam (2019), as well as the Perrotin Gallery in New York (2018) and Tokyo (2018).

    作為基於他的「建築異常」系列而創作的第一批限量版作品,本拍品展現了一個被強風吹拂之織物包裹著的、從後面看卻是空心的人形。這個版本的母版尺寸更大,且曾戲謔地騙過了全世界觀者的眼睛,包括在費城的紡織品工坊美術館(2012年)、法國的Carré d’Art de Nîmes美術館(2009年)、巴西里約熱內盧的Museu Oi Futuro Rio de Jainero博物館(2017年)。

    阿瑟姆曾在世界各地舉辦個展,包括最近在上海的昊美術館(2019年)。過去的幾年裡阿瑟姆還曾在包括阿姆斯特丹的Galerie Ron Mandos(2019年),以及在貝浩登畫廊在紐約(2018年)與東京(2018年)的空間展覽。
