Following a glimpse of artists Daniel Arsham and Hajime Sorayama‘s co-created project back in October, the duo has unveiled the first look at their artwork and upcoming exhibit. A harmonic amalgamation of the two creative force’s signature styles, the sculptures showcase an eroded crystal arm interlocking fingers with a damaged robot arm. In conjunction with the opening of NANZUKA’s 2G creative space, the gallery portion will exhibit the collaborative sculptures and a new painting by Sorayama.
“The creativity of these two artists, who both attempt to transcend time, place, and even the forms of life itself through their powers of imagination, has come to achieve an inevitable fusion,” the studio stated. Arsham shared that the idea for the pieces came from a drawing Sorayama presented to him two years ago and that it has taken most of that time for the project to fully materialize.
Arsham x Sorayama marks the first collaborative exhibition between the two artists, as well as 2G’s inaugural display when it opens its doors on Nov. 22. The “Art Toys” section of the studio will also include hybrid BEARBRICKS by Arsham and Sorayama, along with other exclusive collectibles.
