 "Pair(s)" september - december 2015

Born in France in 1966, he lives and works in New York.

Daniel Firman is a French sculptor and performance artist whose work revolves around the themes of weight, force, volume and density. The body, in any case, is always at the center of his works whether it is directly represented or not. His sculptures defy gravity, as it is the case with his most famous sculpture that is undoubtedly Nasutamanus, an elephant standing on its trunk. Firman also finds inspiration in daily objects and daily gestures or motions. When he represents humans, the artist always hides their face, rendering them anonymous and even ordinary; in his work Grey Matters, Firman thus represents himself with his head caught in the eye of a cyclone made of industrial and domestic objects.
