Something strange happened here

about Daniel Firman

Among the many surprising theories made by the human being until today, there is one that concerns an elephant: the beast could balance on its own trunk at a height of 18,000 km above sea level. The theory comes from french artist Daniel Firman whose gravity-defying elephants appeared for the first time at the Palais de Tokyo, in Paris, and Chateau de Fontainebleau, in 2008, in his show titled Wursa. Against the backdrop of the richly-decorated rooms of the castle, a huge elephant balanced delicately on its trunk is quite an enthralling and unforgettable sight.

Born in 1960, in Lyon, France, Daniel has the ability to suspend movement, time and energy in his pieces. His sculptures of people, made from plaster, hover somewhere between dancing and falling. His pieces are minimal yet powerful. He is unafraid to explore several outlets and media of contemporary art. Daniel does photography, light sculpture, installation, performance, and many others.
