Exhibiting his latest work at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, Daniel Arsham‘s “Hourglass” exhibit continues his ongoing project titled “Fictional Archaeologies,” in which he creates replicas of everyday objects. The exhibit features three site-specific installations infused with mythology and striking colors. Viewers are first treated to the initial installation of a monochromatic Japanese zen garden featuring a traditional pagoda, tatami mats and racked sand in a blue tone. Moving on to the second installation, we find a large hourglass filled with crushed blue crystals and sculptural casts. The final installation is a purple cavern made from amethyst-cast sports equipment, which was previously displayed in Galerie Perrotin, New York. The attendees will have the ability to walk through the gallery to experience all three elements.
“Hourglass” is now open until March 21. For more on Daniel Arsham and his work, check out Snarkitecture’s latest “The Beach” installation plans in Paris here.
