Daniel Steegmann Mangrané intends to totally and profoundly transform the space of the IAC. And so, the path of the exhibition, Ne voulais prendre ni forme, ni chair, ni matière, generates new vanishing lines.

This path through the exhibition also translates the artist’s fascination for the notion of dissolution of the self in its surroundings.

Combinations of agents which influence one another”.
