Daniel Arsham, a contemporary artist based in New York City, has a new home at the Selfridge’s department store in London and the artist brought quite the centerpiece. Arsham unveiled a fully driveable 911 complete with an eroded finish that is unlike any Porsche you’ve ever seen before. The car will be part of a “residency” that will be taking place at the Selfridges Corner Shop through January.
Artist Daniel Arsham’s visual hook is decay — from architecture and set design to life-size casts of a Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder and 1981 DeLorean. For his latest work, Arsham collaborated with Selfridges on a 2020 Porsche 911 — the real thing — that sports his signature crystal erosions.
The shop will have a number of Arsham’s sculptures for sale as well as collaborations that include exclusive products from Byredo, A-Cold-Wall, Dior Homme, and Smeg, just to name a few.
“Art should be an everyday experience, it’s taking something that you know and showing you a different aspect of it.” – Daniel Arsham for Hypebeast, October 2019.
The House of Daniel Arsham will be open until January 5th, 2020.
