New York’s multidisciplinary artist Daniel Arsham is currently holding his “Paris, 3020” exhibition at Galerie Perrotin, and now, the gallery offers a look inside at the works on display.

“Paris, 3020” is an extension of the artist’s ongoing Fictional Archaeology series, exhibiting a suite of large-scale sculptures based on iconic busts and friezes based on classical antiquity. Arsham achieved this by being granted access to the Réunion des Musées Nationaux — “a 200-year-old French molding atelier that reproduces masterpieces for several of Europe’s major encyclopedic museums,” as stated by Perrotin’s press statement.

Now that the doors to “Paris, 3020” are open, Galerie Perrotin has offered a closer look inside at some of the exhibition’s most notable pieces. Sources for the body of work include pieces from the Musée du Louvre in Paris, Acropolis Museum in Athens, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and the San Pietro in Vincoli, with each bust and frieze being adapted by Arsham in his usual crystal-embellished, raw style.

Spanning everything from Michelangelo’s Moses to the Vénus de Mil, “Paris, 3020” presents a series of hydrostone-cast artworks that incorporate volcanic ash, blue calcite, selenite, quartz, and rose quartz into their design. From there, works are individually and uniquely “eroded” and chiseled, before being treated to crystallization. Take a look at Daniel Arsham’s work in the gallery above, and see it all in real life until March 21, 2020.

In other news, Daniel Arsham recently teased a Game Boy-shaped CRYSTAL RELIC 002.
