DANIEL ARSHAM

New York based artist Daniel Arsham straddles the line between art, architecture and performance. Architecture is a prevalent subject throughout his work; environments with eroded walls and stairs going nowhere, landscapes where nature overrides structures, and a general sense of playfulness within existing architecture.

Simple yet paradoxical gestures dominate his sculptural work: a façade that appears to billow in the wind, a figure wrapped up in the surface of a wall, a contemporary object cast in volcanic ash as if it was found on some future archeological site.

Together with his fellow artist Alex Mustonen, Arsham established the Snarkitecture – a collaborative and experimental practice of creating in the fields of and between art and architecture.
