Commanding of one's immediate attention and inherently captivating, 'Hollow Figure' is one of artist Daniel Arsham’s largest sculptural works, executed in his characteristic clean white aesthetic. Here, the indistinguishable impression of a figure, measuring six feet tall, is engulfed in an expansive white sheet. The work conveys a tangible sense of energy and movement, while bringing up themes surrounding the transient nature of life itself and the confusion that often encompasses defining one’s identity.

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.
