This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in France, he is an installation sculptor who has combined music with his sculptures in unique performance events. He divides his time between New York and Paris.

Many of his sculptures are in groupings with pieces of marble, painted stones, and scrap iron.

In the 1970s, he worked in filament-like forms, but changed to a style that was more robust and expressive. He likes to combine geometric and organic elements and is fascinated by contradictions.

He has been a great fan of jazz since 1992, when he became a friend of American saxophonist Steve Lacy, and at a June 1992 opening of an exhibition of Kirili's sculpture, Lacy walked among the objects playing his sax. From that time, Kirili has expanded into more performances adding a drummer and creating "Jam Sessions." He has also worked with composer Cecil Taylor with whom he has collaborated since 1992.

In this combining of music and sculpture, he wants to step out of the confines of the art world and also wage a war against puritanism by introducing sensual forms.
