Oh wow, it's Daniel Arsham
The installations of American artist Daniel Arsham play with the very fabric of the gallery itself. His first solo show, the fall, the ball and the wall, has just opened at the OHWOW gallery in Los Angeles
Hiding Figure, 2011, Fiberglas, paint, joint compound, mannequin, fabric, and shoes, 87 x 48.5 x 13 inches
The show, OHWOW says "illustrates the artist's continued interest in manipulating architecture and in challenging expectations of accepted realities".
In these latest works, Arsham uses materials such as fibreglass and foam to create pieces that appear to be formed out of the walls of the gallery itself.
Curtain, EPS foam, plaster gauze
Mail Slot, 2008, Bronze, plaster, paint, joint compound
the fall, the ball and the wall is at OHWOW, 937 N. La Cienega Blvd. Los Angeles, until February 16. Details here

This absolutely blows me away. If I saw this in person I'd be speechless.
Tom & Jerry slapstick for grown-ups?
Amazing work! Love every single piece.
New , clean and white. Beautiful.
A quirky display, indeed! I would be disappointed if I were able to see the exhibit in person because I’d want to take some of Daniel’s art home. His ideas are really quite simple and yet I’m awed by the audacity – ie: what could possibly be ectoplasm oozing out from my air vent right onto my living room carpet!
