Daniel Arsham's Latest Show Features Petrified Cars From Your Favorite 80's Films
Daniel Arsham’s highly anticipated 3018 exhibition has finally opened it’s doors at New York’s Galerie Perrotin. The show, which boast the much hyped eroded DeLorean from Back to the Future, also features the classic Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder, made famous by another 80’s cult classic, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. To achieve the proportional sizing of both sculptures, Arsham had to source both extremely scarce cars, and take apart each vehicle for a complete 1:1 casting.
The collection, which play’s on the artist's continuing exploration of what the artifacts from today, found by the society of the future would look like, also features a junk-yard pile up of discarded objects casted in selenite, quartz, pyrite crystal and volcanic ash. Life-size figurines of Mickey Mouse and other once-friendly recognizable shapes are wrapped up in bags and rope, eerily similar to a body bag. See the eroded artifacts in person before 3018 closes on October 21st.
