Daniel Arsham’s work blurs the lines between art, architecture and performance, and explores issues of natural versus manufactured or intention versus happenstance.
Through sculpture, drawing and performance, Arsham challenges our perceptions of physical space in order to make architecture perform the improbable. The surfaces of walls appear to melt, erode and ripple. Animals contemplate the emergence of floating shapes in nature. Sculptures from antiquity are infused with rigid, geometric forms.
In 2003, Daniel Arsham graduated from Cooper Union in New York City and received the Gelman Trust Fellowship Award. After graduation, Arsham returned to Miami to found seminal artist-run spaces "Placemaker," and "The House."
Arsham is represented by Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, RonMandos Gallery in Amsterdam and OHWOW in Los Angeles, California.
