2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

In August of 1992, Daniel Arsham was nearly killed in a hurricane in Miami. This being the 20th anniversary of that event, the experience has provided the initial inspiration for this work. Witnessing the dramatic and destructive possibilities of nature and its impact on human constructions, Arsham has created a new series of his architectural interventions that expand on his ability to make architecture perform the unexpected. After the hurricane, there was broken glass everywhere in Arsham’s home and all of the framed works on the walls were destroyed. A number of new self-portraits reform the broken glass back into sculptural objects.
