Background Information: 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 (b.1977) lives
and works in Bern. His work has been presented in solo and group shows
as well as performances internationally. Zimoun has been awarded
different art prizes and residencies and has served as a guest lecturer.
In 2003 Zimoun co-founded leerraum.ch - a publishing platform for
artists from various disciplines who explore forms and structures based
on reductive principles.
