Car lovers might cringe at seeing such images, but “Eroded Delorean” and “1961 Ferrari 250GT California” are movie-inspired works of sculptural art that present views of “a dystopian future full of the crumbling stone ruins of everyday objects,” news.artnet.com reports of the work of Daniel Arsham, which it includes in a story about “45 Can’t-Miss Gallery Shows in New York This September.”

“Daniel Arsham: 3018” is the title of the show at Perrotin, 130 Orchard Street, that runs from September 8 through October 21.

“Daniel Arsham’s work imagines a dystopian future full of the crumbling stone ruins of everyday objects,” artnet.com reports. “He’s turned the ground floor of Perrotin into a garage housing two life-size car sculptures inspired by classic 1980s cinema: the 1981 Delorean in Back to the Future (1985) and the 1961 Ferrari from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), their long-defunct engines choked with volcanic ash and crystals.”
