Daniel Arsham comes back with his current exhibition ‘Hourglass’ at High museum of Art in Atlanta, on view until May 21st.
Hourglass comprises three related, site-specific installations, each infused with mythology and striking color. In one area, the artist will create a complete Japanese Zen garden with traditional pagoda, tatami mats, and raked sand, all rendered in bright blue. Arsham will transform a second gallery space into a purple amethyst cavern composed of sports equipment. The final installation consists of a set of large hourglasses filled with crushed blue crystals and sculptural casts. Performers will move through the gallery periodically, subtly altering different elements of the space.
