Surreal environment at Connecting Time

‘Connecting Time’ is an exhibition with works from his entire career. Four architectural pieces that visitors will initially consider to be ‘common’, form a surrealistic environment through subtle distortion. Sportswear and objects from pop culture have been eroded as if they were excavated at an archaeological site.

Apart from the works he’s made over the years, there will be a number of new and never-before-seen works and installations created for this exhibition. Arsham’s interactive installation Calcified Living Room is reminiscent of the inside of a cave covered with minerals, or the city of Pompeii preserved by lava.
