For a new contemporary carte blanche, Musée Guimet has invited artist Daniel Arsham to present his latest series of emblematic sculptures in an exhibition entitled “Moonraker”.

Tackling his favourite subject — archaeology of the future — Arsham has been given unprecedented access to the moulds from the Grand Palais. Comprising a selection of works from the vast collection of moulds from the RMN-Grand Palais cast workshop, Arsham has relied on the expertise of the mould-makers to assist him in his execution.

“The exhibition includes a number of cast works from the Museum’s collection as well as this blue garden inspired by my Japanese Wife and the time I spent with her in Kyoto,” said Arsham in a recent Instagram post. “The tree which contains crystal formations as well as the lantern were both hand-sculpted based on a tree and lantern that I first saw there almost 10 years ago”.

Set to be displayed amidst the museum’s permanent collections, the exhibition will be compiled by the installation of a Japanese Zen garden in the rotunda on the museum’s fourth floor. “Moonraker” will be exhibiting from 21 October 2020 through to 25 January 2021.

For more information, you can visit the Musée national des arts asiatiques Guimet website.
