Daniel Arsham is set to launch concurrent exhibitions at the NANZUKA and Galerie Perrotin galleries in Tokyo, Japan. For NANZUKA, the show entitled “Architecture Anomalies” will feature large-scale sculptural installations that draw upon the artist’s concept of Fictional Archaeology — decaying works of contemporary human figures, body parts, and detritus. Noteworthy artworks include an eroded wall, a cloth seamlessly dissolving into a wall, and a piece of cloth that “serves to suggest a sense of physicality,” said the gallery in a statement.
As for the Perrotin exhibit titled “Color Shadows” will display handstitched, stretched, and cast sculptures of iconic cartoon characters such as the artist’s reinterpretation of Sesame Street‘s beloved Cookie Monster in the photo above. These works were made using Arsham’s latest method of dusting color chiaroscuro pigment.
Stay tuned for more details on the exhibits and expect both to launch on May 23 up until June 30.
