  • Catalogue Essay

    New-York based visual artist and architect Daniel Arsham is internationally celebrated for his multidisciplinary practice that touches each end of the art world spectrum, exceeding any niche or discipline. The present work, Future Relic Complete Excavation Set, brings together all nine editioned works from his critically acclaimed Future Relics series. For this series, Arsham re-imagines iconic cultural items from the 20th and 21st centuries as partially eroded ‘artefacts’, exploring the dichotomies between reality and fiction, and destruction and creation. At the centre of this series is the theme of inevitably - that objects in the present reflect ideas from the past, destined to be transformed by the future. Created using hand-made moulds, Arsham recasts and reframes these cultural items with his signature crystallised erosions that appear stuck in an ambiguous space between crumbling decay and mineral growth. In doing so, he invites the viewer to see these commodities anew and consider how our culture might be historicised by generations to come.

    Alongside collaborating with household brands as diverse as Rimowa, Wedgwood, Heinz, and Dior Homme to create a dystopian, post-consumerist vision of domestic life, Arsham has been the subject of solo exhibitions around the world. In recent years, this has included 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).
