Description Catalogue of the exhibition 'La matiere grise' held at Musee d'art Contemporain de Lyon, 25 May - 21 July 2013. Summary Daniel Firman is one of the leading figures in the French art scene, participating regularly in numerous exhibitions, personal and collective, in France as well as abroad. He has for more than a decade deployed a single formal language, focusing particularly on the question of bodies and their balance. Constantly exploring the territory of the sculpture, Daniel Firman stages anonymous characters and elements of everyday situations in precarious balance. The consumer society is evoked through stacks of disparate characters who have their names for identity but whose face is always hidden. His works, which often were spectacular sculptures, have eased over time with his growing interest in dance and movement. Bodies appear in his works in precarious balance, close to falling but never succumbing.
