Art powerhouse Perrotin have gallery spaces throughout the world, but seemingly not enough, as they have teamed up with Nanzuka gallery to present a duo of Daniel Arsham shows taking Tokyo by storm. Perrotin’s Colour Shadow and Nanzuka’s Architectural Anomalies will both simultaneously show from 23 May to 30 June. From colours to cookie monsters, expect to see brand spanking new works from your favourite American artist.

Imagine being colour-blind but with the help of a pair of glasses, discovering what colours look like. Arsham does just this in his series titled Colour Shadows, bringing a new dimension to his work after seeing colours for the first time. Using this colour chiaroscuro, he reimagines icons from his childhood in scale and material, using original fabric from stuffed animals and creating almost a patchwork of memories. Pushing himself like never before, Arsham engages completely with the gallery space from floor to ceiling and features sculptures realised in fascinating detail.

But just across the city you’ll find Nanzuka, and whilst the shows are close in location, they are far in likeness. Architectural Anomalies references Arsham’s previous works that received much attention and praise at last year’s Moscow Biennale. His works look at the confusion between space and physical sensations, making his sculptures seem impossible on scientific grounds. A renowned experimenter, both series’ works use a variety of materials from volcanic ash to obsidian, and also feature his first ever pieces using bronze. So maybe it’s time to book that long-awaited holiday to Japan.
Colour Shadow by Daniel Arsham will inaugurate on May 23 and will be on view until June 30 at Perrotin Tokyo, Piramide Building, 1F, 6-6-9 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tokyo.
