Daniel Arsham’s Storytelling Through Wall Sculptures in Moco Museum

From January 18th until September 30th, 2019, Moco Museum in Amsterdam is hosting New York-based artist Daniel Arsham’s solo show ‘Connecting Time’. Arsham’s work draws on a range of disciplines, incorporating architecture, design, sculpture, film, and performance. Moco Museum is the first museum in the Netherlands to present Daniel Arsham’s work.

Entering the installation spaces of this art exhibition, such as Amethyst Ball Cavern and Eroded Wall Paper Room, feels like stepping into an alternate reality. The contemporary artist’s fascination with wall art featuring pop culture objects, sports and the influence of archeology are apparent in these spaces.

The show also includes Arsham’s never before presented interactive modern art installation Calcified Room, consisting of a domestic space furnished in mid-century style but created to appear strangely petrified. The calcified room is evocative of a cave interior scaled with minerals, or the city of Pompeii, eternally preserved in ash.

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