Daniel Arsham’s Otherworldly Eclectic Installations Launch at Dutch Museum

AMSTERDAM – A major retrospective of American artist Daniel Arsham launched on Friday in Amsterdam at a Dutch gallery.

Arsham, a well-known fine artist who works primarily with sculpture, installation and architectural interventions, presented an eclectic body of work at the Moco Museum in Amsterdam for his solo “Connecting Time” show spanning his career.

“For my first museum-scale exhibition in the Netherlands, I am excited to partner with Moco Museum to present a selection of my work spanning the last 10 years of my career,” Arsham said on the gallery’s program.

“I’ve created some new and never-before-seen works and installations for this show and am very looking forward to share my practice with the Dutch people and international audience in Amsterdam,” the artist added.

The installation spaces of the exhibit have an otherworldly and ethereal quality to them.

“Calcified Room” presents bleached mid-century modern furniture in a whitewashed space, giving the impression that the room has been petrified.

“Amethyst Ball Cavern,” another surreal installation, creates a cave from molded sports balls in a deep-mauve hue.

Also featured are Arsham’s iconic swaddled objects that seamlessly merge with walls after they have been painted a brilliant white.

The artists’ recurring thematics of pop culture, through the use of iconic objects and symbols, archaeology, architecture and geology, are apparent throughout the retrospective.

The way objects appear eroded, and at times ingrained in cavernous spaces and walls, gives a sometimes-clinical apocalyptic feel to the spaces Arsham creates.

The exhibition is on display until Sept. 30.
