    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 part of his Future Relic series (2013-2018), the editioned present lot serves as an anthropological artefact, conceived by Arsham to signify an obsolete technology of the future, dystopian world. Mimicking the design of a vintage Casio Casiotone MT-500 keyboard, Arsham reinterprets the instrument in a state of disintegration, executed in plaster and crushed glass.

    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).

    作為他的「未來的遺物」系列(2013-2018年)中的一部分,本限量版的拍品標示人類學遺跡的作用,通過阿瑟姆的構思來顯示來自未來的、反烏托邦世界的過時科技。模仿老式Casio Casiotone MT-500 鍵盤,阿瑟姆用石膏和碎玻璃為材料,以支離瓦解的狀態來重新演繹該樂器。

    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。
