Daniel Arsham is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the distortions of structures, time, and space. His work revolves around the unique concept of ‘Fictional Archeology’, also described as ‘future relics of the present’, creating eroded casts of artifacts from the late 20th century and millennial era as if they had been discovered after being buried for ages. To produce such casts, the artist uses geological materials such as sand, volcanic ash and crystals to further emphasize the idea of unearthing and of timeless crystallization of those cultural symbols.
This rare special set of 3 silkscreens is the first work in print released by Daniel Arsham and constitutes an exceptional example of the prevalence and recurrence of crystals in his work. Arsham is portraying antiquity figures that have been subjected to erosion, exposing an underlayer of sharp crystal blocks. This set comes with its own embroidered gloves, meant to be worn at all times to handle the prints.
