The masterpieces of classical antiquity revisited by Daniel Arsham: continuing his fictional archaeological approach, the American artist offers, through his reappropriation of the Venus de Milo or Michelangelo's Moses, a reflection on our relationship to time .
Accompanied by teams from the Louvre, Daniel Arsham visited the museum's collections to study the Greek and Roman statues that inspired the works in his new series. To create this new body of sculptures, the artist Daniel Arsham drew from the vast collection of molds created by the RMN Art Workshops - Grand Palais. Using sculpture molds from the collections of the Louvre and other institutions throughout France, the artist's studio team worked alongside that of RMN statuary-moulders in the execution of the works. This book presents a new set of sculptures by the artist, and the different stages of their production. It is accompanied by a text by Ludovic Laugier as well as an interview with the artist by Ludovic Laugier.

Learn more about the artist

Born in 1980 in Cleveland, Daniel Arsham lives and works in New York. His uchronistic aesthetic revolves around his concept of fictional archaeology. Working in sculpture, architecture, drawing and cinema, he creates and crystallizes ambiguous intermediate spaces or situations, and stages what he calls future relics of the present. They are weathered casts of modern artifacts and contemporary human figures, which he expertly crafts from geological materials such as sand, selenite or volcanic ash so that they appear as if they came from be discovered after having been buried for centuries. Always emblematic, most of the objects he transforms into stone refer to the end of the 20th century or the millennial era, when technological obsolescence accelerated without precedent with the digital dematerialization of our world. As the present, future and past collide poetically in his haunted yet playful visions between romanticism and pop art, Daniel Arsham also experiments with the timelessness of certain symbols and gestures across cultures.
