Neon (Pattern)


Daniel Firman uses neon lights to write, sculpt or underline, always playing with the reversal and diversion of situations. This series of artworks articulates itself in an absurd manner between image and sculpture, by upsetting the inherent materiality of the neon light: intact neon lights creating broken shapes, a rigid tube wrapping itself around a soft form, the outline of a plan drawing volumes.

These neon sculptures question our link to duration and to gravity, recurring preoccupations in Daniel Firman’s work, but with another aesthetic approach. With this series of neon lights, the shapes are impaired either by a fall, or by decay.
