Daniel Arsham At Galerie Perrotin

American artist and designer Daniel Arsham has created a cave from purple spheres as part of his first solo exhibition in New York.

Arsham, who co-founded Brooklyn studio Snarkitecture, has installed the show at Galerie Perrotin in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Known for his use of white in artwork and installations, the artist has introduced colour into his work for the first time at the Circa 2345 exhibition.


It includes a room made from spheres that are illuminated to look a deep purple hue. The spheres, all moulded from different sports balls of various sizes, are grouped to form a cave-like space inside a room on the lower floor.


Upstairs, more sports-themed sculptures are displayed within a white-walled space. Each of the pieces is made from crystalline calcite and is coloured blue.

Moulded jackets and helmets are mounted on the walls, while towers of rugby balls and footballs stretch from floor to ceiling.


Circa 2345 runs from 15 September to 22 October 2016 at Galerie Perrotin, 909 Madison Ave, New York.
