About the sound sculpture:
80 prepared dc-motors, cotton balls, cardboard boxes a sound sculpture by Swiss artist Zimoun Presented as part of Sound Reasons Festival V Also on exhibit Faulty scales can weigh you correctly / A Moth and a Room by ISh S / diFfused Beats About Zimoun Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.
Zimoun lives and works in Bern, Switzerland. Recent displays of his work include exhibitions at the Nam June Paik Art Museum in Korea; Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei; Ringling Museum of Art, Florida; Harnett Museum of Art, Richmond; bitforms gallery New York; Kunsthalle Bern; Seoul Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Art Liechtenstein; Fine Arts Museum Rennes; Art Basel; Central for Contemporary Art Brussels; Galerie Denise René Paris; Museum Les Champs Libres, Rennes; Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum; Contemporary Art Museum MNAC Bucharest; Beall Art Center, Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts Bern; Museum of Contemporary Art MSUM, Ljubljana; National Art Museum, Beijing; Museum of Fine Arts Lugano; among others.
