Zimoun’s Extraordinary Mechanical Installations Are An Immersive Experience Of Sound And Motion
Zimoun’s sculptures and installations incorporate simple mechanical devices such as vibration motors, industrial flotsam-like speaker arrays, PVC hoses, metal wire, polymeric, steel, but also objects such as ventilators, pendulums, cardboard boxes, and sticks. Installed in large quantities and used in repetition, the materials examine the generation and degeneration of patterns, resulting in intricate systems and units organized by very rigid exposition rules. Titled after the constituent elements of the artwork, his works remain abstract and encourage viewers to interpret what they see by relying on the direct experience of their senses. In other words, Zimoun asks the visitors to his works to make an effort in their imagination and act on the completion of the work.
