Daniel Firman

5 May — 3 June 2011


Within the cycle of the lungs’ movements, there is a brief pause between breathing out and breathing in, a particular moment when the respiratory flow slows down to an extreme degree before picking up again. Daniel Firman’s works seem to lodge themselves inside this quality of duration, in a time that has not so much been abolished, but suspended. If it is sculpture the artist presents, what he shows is not frozen, nor inert through immobility, but rather reveals movements in a pause mode.
