The futuristic technology from the Back To The Future Movies is degrading quickly into the realm of antiquity, along with other ghosts of pop culture’s past. New York-based artist Daniel Arsham explores the disintegration of our icons with his new exhibit, entitled 3018.
The 3018 exhibit opened September 8 at Galerie Perrotin New York. It is the latest installment of Arsham’s to follow his “Future Relic” and “Fictional Archaeology” themes, which explore the erosion of famous items. Items like the DeLorean from the Back To The Future trilogy, which he has recreated from stainless steel, glass reinforced plastic, quartz crystal, pyrite, paint, and designed to be dilapidated and aged. A representation in volcanic ash-gray of the 1961 Ferrari 250GT California from Ferris Bueller, along with various decayed plastic cartoon sculptures highlight art installation.
