Reflex Gallery is pleased to present a set of recent works by Daniel Firman.
All of the sculptures in this exhibition revolve around the body and the object: The body with the object / the body without an object / the object without the body. The exhibition is constructed like a crossfade where each sculpture becomes like a planar surface on which movement from one work to another is activated.
The works Attitude and Gathering as the two important series of the artist with junction of third more recent one Plastic confetti give this show all the dimensions of an extremely contemporary vision of our world.
'The Switch Up exhibition shows a compendium of decisions where identity is erased in favour of a globalisation of information where, more broadly, object and matter end up taking their own authority and lasting autonomy. It would seem that the indecision to do with or without defines us today in a world that is constantly changing, in this contemporary intoxication of stop and go.' DF
The artist nevertheless refers to the constructions of a work whose heritage is made from gesture, moulding, nesting and collage. Impacted and overwhelmed, the works of Daniel Firman seem to give us a realistic vision with quirky and joyful humour of a 'chaotic' world. It gives a vision of resistance orchestrating like dance movements where the bodies perform in order to irreversibly avoid a slippage, a collapse.
