Created as a collaboration between Daniel Arsham and JOYA, the Exoplanet Candle combines Arsham’s fascination with space and JOYA’s unique fragrances. The Exoplanet Candle must be assembled by the collector by filling the porcelain piece with the scented wax beads.

From paintings, sculptures, and experiences, The Arsham Monograph includes all aspects of the artist’s practice. This artist’s book is the first comprehensive look at Daniel Arsham’s reoccurring themes and concepts formed over the last 15 years. The book includes an introduction by Virgil Abloh, a conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist, and an essay by Steven Matijcio.

About Daniel Arsham

Daniel Arsham (American, b. 1980) is a contemporary artist living and working in New York City. Known for his eroded architectural sculptures, his art combines structural experimentation, history, and satire in order to disrupt viewers’ expectations of space and form. He is most famous for his series of fictional archeological relics, which explore both the obsolescence of fast-moving technology and the timelessness of cultural symbols. Arsham co-founded The House, an artist space in Miami, and Snarkitecture, a New York design firm, and regularly collaborates with other artists including Merce Cunningham and Pharrell Williams.
