Daniel Arsham is set to release a new sculptural edition entitled Hollow Figure. Drawing inspiration from the artist’s life-sized sculpture under his Architectural Anomalies series, the must-have collectible portrays the likeness of a human subject completely ensnared in a blown fabric. However, the existence of the figure disappears when viewed from behind. Collectively, versions of this sculpture have been exhibited at “The Fabric Workshop Museum in Philadelphia (2012), Carré d’Art de Nîmes, France (2009), and Museu Oi Futuro Rio de Jainero, Brazil (2017),” as per the artist in an Instagram caption noting the release.
Hollow Figure will see an official release on Daniel Arsham’s website this December 3 at noon EST. Sizing and pricing details have yet to be confirmed. Elsewhere, take a look at this week’s best art drops.

I will release a limited edition of the Hollow Figure next Monday December 3rd at 12 Noon EST on my website, danielarsham.com. This is the first edition based on my Architectural Anomalies, and is a scaled version of larger works that I have sculpted in this series. (Seen in the subsequent images) The appearance of a figure shrouded in fabric is revealed to be empty when seen from behind. These works have been exhibited globally at Museums such as The Fabric Workshop Museum in Philadelphia (2012), Carré d'Art de Nîmes, France (2009), and Museu Oi Futuro Rio de Jainero, Brazil (2017).
