Daniel Arsham is a 29 year old American Artist, best known for his reworking of architectural and natural forms of the everyday. These pieces were done for a 2007 exhibition called "eyeSpace" at the Miami Performing Arts Center. His work aims to demonstrate how art wields power over other fields.
These installations were done using rubber, plaster, paint and fabric. So simple yet so powerful; the work instantly challenges what we hold inherently true about the 4 or more walls that surround us in any space.
He again collaborates with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company starting March 29th during the French National Biennale of Dance in Paris, integrating found objects into his work and cutting holes in the back walls of the theatre.
