Contemporary Artist Daniel Arsham is set to unveil his latest exhibition in New York City’s Galerie Perrotin, titled “3018.”

The castings showcased Arsham’s mastery of casting once again, this time highlight perhaps his most beautiful creation yet: a 1:1 proportionally-sized Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder, made famous by 1986 cult classic film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The car, according to Arsham, was even more difficult to work on due to its scarcity, and required a bit of finessing in order to get an accurate 1:1 scale cast job completed.

An interest in materials—synthetic and natural, manmade and geological—pervades all the work on view, and with 3018, Arsham remains committed to his signature gesture: transposition. He casts common objects in geological materials that render them as obsolete as they are recognisable, thus highlighting their iconic status. A cast of characters recognisable from childhood cartoons appear as oversized, cast iron-on patches, mementos from the artist’s youth, now calcified. Formerly pliable, they’ve transubstantiated into hardened forms. Some have cracked to reveal the mineral growths that seem to have overtaken many of Arsham’s artifacts.

The now rigid status of these objects is only evident to the touch, not the eye; They are cast meticulously, the bers of the embroidery captured in the material. This haptic quality only accentuates the confusion of materials that seems to animate much of Arsham’s work, his imperative to ‘make one material look like another.’ That which we know to be soft is hard, that which was once stable is now mutable.
Alongside the two vehicles, “3018” also showcases a collection of books and magazines which were conceptualized and imagined by Arsham. “I had wanted to create some casts of books and magazines for a while but I was struggling. Like I would find a magazine but I was like ‘am I interested in the subject matter or the book if the book was of an artist?’ or something. So I just ended up inventing these books.” Some examples of the tomes presented are design books and publications on modernism, and even a fictitious issue of Vanity Fair, as guest edited by Hiroshi Fujiwara.
