Fresh off Perrier-Jouët's Bi-Centenaire Project (more on that later), Daniel Arsham has a new installation and performance piece debuting this week in NYC. "Dig", in collaboration with Arsham's firm Snarkitecture, comprises of completely filling the gallery space at the Storefront for Art and Architecture with white architectural foam. Arsham and his fellow Snarkitects will occupy the space during the monthlong installation, excavating the foam filled gallery with simple tools to transform the space into a cavernous experiment in form.

The tunneling continues through 4 April 2011, and as performances until 22 April 2011. The exhibition is invitation-only, but passersby can sneak a peak from the street or can follow the progress from start to finish on OHWOW's site.
