Daniel Arsham: Sands of Time

UCCA Dune, UCCA Center for Contemporary Art / Beidaihe / Art

Best known for recreating objects that retain memories, such as turn-of-the-century electronic gadgets, Daniel Arsham now experiments with relics. Having been given access to a 200-year-old French molding atelier, Arsham has boldly recast iconic sculptures and friezes from antiquity, and then opened them up, revealing infrastructures of clear and colored crystals, gold stones, and metal rods, a sense of impermanence petrified, glittering like an internal universe. The result is a powerful metaphor regarding man and time. This is Arsham’s first solo exhibition at UCCA Dune and it features a new body of work. —E.C.
