The ERODED BRILLO BOX is an imagined sculpture found in a future archaeological dig site using Warhol’s iconic 1964 Brillo Box as its inspiration. In collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum, Arsham has been granted access to the museum’s archives. The passing of time has transformed the object from its original materials into a sculpture inspired by the original Arsham work (ERODED BRILLO BOXES, 2019) made of quartz crystal and other calcified geological materials.
Believing that art should be an everyday experience for everyone, Arsham’s multidisciplinary creative practice is also a testament to his commitment to bringing art to a broad audience. ERODED BRILLO BOX, which is an edition of 500 pieces, maintains the artistic and aesthetic essence of the original Arsham work while making it more accessible to art lovers and fans. Each edition is 24.5 cm in height and weighs 7 kg. ERODED BRILLO BOX comes in an Arsham studio designed housing with die-cut foam, sealing label, and a pair of white art handling gloves. Each ERODED BRILLO BOX includes an Arsham Editions holographic label verifying its edition number and authenticity.
Commenting on the release, Arsham says, “Having the opportunity to work within the history and lineage that Andy placed on these everyday stereotypical objects and blending this with my own artistic language has been an interesting conceptual exercise. Andy and I share the message of art in the everyday and this edition perfectly encapsulates this idea.”
The original ERODED BRILLO BOXES, 2019 (130.5 x 44.5 x 44.5 cm) were created to commemorate the 25th anniversary of The Andy Warhol Museum.
