The masterpieces of classical antiquity revisited by Daniel Arsham: continuing his fictitious archaeological approach, the American artist offers through his reappropriation of the Venus de Milo or of Michelangelo's Moses a reflection on our relationship to time .
Accompanied by teams from the Louvre, Daniel Arsham visited the museum's collections to study the Greek and Roman statues that inspired the works in his new series. To create this new body of sculptures, artist Daniel Arsham drew on the vast collection of molds produced by the Ateliers d'Art de la RMN - Grand Palais. Using sculpture molds from the collections of the Louvre and other institutions across France, the artist's studio team worked alongside that of the sculptor-molders of RMN in the execution of the works. This book presents a new set of sculptures by the artist, and the different stages of their manufacture. It is accompanied by a text by Ludovic Laugier as well as an interview with the artist by Ludovic Laugier.

Learn more about the artist

Born in 1980 in Cleveland, Daniel Arsham lives and works in New York. Its uchronic aesthetic revolves around its concept of fictitious archeology. Working in sculpture, architecture, drawing and cinema, he creates and crystallizes ambiguous intermediate spaces or situations, and stages what he calls future relics of the present. They are eroded casts of modern artifacts and contemporary human figures, which he expertly fabricates from geological materials such as sand, selenite or volcanic ash to appear as if they came from be discovered after being buried for centuries. Always emblematic, most of the objects that he transforms into stone refer to the end of the XNUMXth century or to the millennial era, when technological obsolescence accelerated unprecedentedly with the digital dematerialization of our world. While the present, the future and the past collide poetically in his haunted but playful visions between romanticism and pop art, Daniel Arsham also experiments the timelessness of certain symbols and gestures across cultures.
