Description

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.
