Last night museum goers at the High Museum of Art were delighted with the art of Daniel Arsham. His new exhibit Hourglass is a collection of three related installations, each infused with mythology and vibrant colors. On the second floor of the Anne Cox Chambers Wing, you will find a complete Japanese Zen garden with traditional pagoda, tatami mats, and raked sand, all rendered in bright blue. In the next gallery space art enthusiasts walk through a most unique purple amethyst cavern filled with sports balls. The final installation, located in the lobby, consists of a set of large hourglasses filled with crushed blue crystals and sculptural casts.
Hourglass continues Daniel Arsham’s ongoing project Fictional Archaeologies, in which he creates replicas of everyday objects—such as basketballs and cameras—in precious and semi-precious stones.
Hourglass will be on display March 4th – May 21st.
