A current exhibition at Galerie Perrotin Paris, entitled Paris, 3020, by multidisciplinary artist Daniel Arsham, has been opened, and we take a closer look at it and its most notable pieces.

Lasting through March 21, 2020, the exhibition, which is an extension to New York-based artist’s ongoing series Fictional Archaeology, is a set of masterfully recreated large-scale busts from the classical period, with help from the Réunion des Musées Nationaux—“a 200-year-old French molding atelier that reproduces masterpieces for several of Europe’s major encyclopedic museums”. The body of work includes pieces from the Musée du Louvre in Paris, Acropolis Museum in Athens, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and the San Pietro in Vincoli.

“Paris, 3020” presents a series of hydro stone-cast artworks that incorporate volcanic ash, blue calcite, selenite, quartz, and rose quartz into their design—all blending into Arsham’s iconic crystal-embellished, raw style—later treated individually and uniquely to create the recognizable “eroded” effect.

Tour the gallery and take a closer look at Paris, 3020 below.
