Daniel Arsham The Fall, The Ball, and The Wall
The fall, the ball, and the wall, Daniel Arsham’s first solo show with the gallery, illustrates the artist’s continued interest in manipulating architecture and in challenging expectations of accepted realities. Arsham presents three bodies of work, revealing his diverse practice and the progressive manner in which he approaches his subject matter, chosen media, and the surrounding environment.
His structural interventions that cause walls to appear in a state of flux, as if they are melting or dripping, reverse the notion of architectural rigidity and of a partition’s standard presentation. With a new series of work on canvas, he depicts realistic building constructions, which include elements that spell out words, such as “oops.” A large-scale, hanging mass of tinted spheres, from the set of Merce Cunningham’s final performances, is a three-dimensional sculpture based from the pixels of a hyper-magnified photograph of a cloud formation.
