Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporated commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulated 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, born in Switzerland in 1977, lives and works in Bern. His work has been presented in solo and group shows as well as performances worldwide. Zimoun has been awarded different art prizes and residencies and has served as a guest lecturer.
The exhibition offered new audiences unique sensory experiences that redefine traditional notions of sculpture and sonic performance. Visitors were invited to encounter Zimouns work, which opened up a wide, refreshing and enriching space for discoveries.
