Daniel Hourdé 'Man in Progress'

05 December 2013 - 25 January 2014

After his much acclaimed installation conceived for the church of Saint-Germaindes- Prés, Daniel Hourdé comes back to the neighborhood with a new solo show starting next December. The human body, tortured and forthright, but no less radiant, is a leitmotif for the paintings and sculptures by Daniel Hourdé.

« Daniel Hourdé, an adept of polymorphism and acutely sensible to manifestations of the human form, sets forth an aesthetic project to render visible that which exists within the body’s very form. Human matter sculpted in wax reveals in its finished surface the infinite substrata progressing downward to the core, an amalgam of matter and animation. Imprinted upon a diversity of bodies, one sees a whole repertory of passions and sensations carefully assembled by the artist. Whether dancing or at rest, these forms take part in a choreography. Charcoal bodies suspended in the space between life and death, these are also bodies in distress, detached and alone. »
