“Grey Matter”, Daniel Firman’s first major personal exhibition in a museum, reveals all the facets of his work. He has entirely redesigned the exhibition areas to present already “historical’ works in association with some previously unseen creations in a highly original scenographic context.

His interest in everything which constitutes sculpture today is composed “in the manner of a music score” with rhythm, accelerations and silences. From iconographic and choreographic references to questions closely linked to tradition and sculpture (molding, the body, realism), from sound to space and gesture to image, Daniel Firman has created a veritable polyphony which he presents here for the first time.

Over the two levels of MAC Lyon which house the exhibition, the visitor walks along an itinerary that oscillates between visible and invisible objects and human forms, between presence and absence, following a kind of “story in sculpture” which progressively introduces perceptual areas.

Catalog: A bilingual French-English catalog is being co-edited by MAC Lyon and the Galerie Perrotin. Illustrated with exhibition photographs and prefaced by Thierry Raspail, the MAC Lyon’ s director, it will also contain an interview with exhibition commissar and art critic Hou Hanru and a text by Emmanuel Latreille, the director of the FRAC Languedoc Roussillon.
