Petersen Automotive Museum: Daniel Arsham’s Eroded Car Sculptures
Daniel Arsham’s collection features sculptures of various eroded cars that mix concepts of the past, present, and future, with the sculptures resembling archaeological findings from the past that are usually dug up and look eroded or fossilised. Featured in the sculpture collection are notable cars on which Arsham has based his artwork; these include the Porsche 911, the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT and the 1955 Porche Speedsetter, among many others.
The sculptures are made of materials like selenite, sand and quartz which solidifies the fossilised appearance of the sculpture. With the Arsham Auto Motive exhibition, Daniel Arsham aims to showcase a glimpse into the future by historicising the automobiles within his artwork.
