Zimoun's kinetic sound installations hardly need introduction. Ever since the immaculate documentation of his work first surfaced a couple of years ago, the Swiss artist's elegant mass assemblies of mechanical dc-motors, wires, tubes and cardboard and the complex sound textures they generate have been subject of numerous international exhibitions and a lot more glowing reviews. Lofty descriptions however can't quite capture the immersive quality of Zimoun's installations, you have to experience them for yourself – if you are in the New York area between now and March 10th, you still can.
Opening this Saturday (April 26) and presented by the Art Museum of Lugano in Switzerland, 36 ventilators, 4.7m³ packing chips is the new installation by Zimoun, swiss born and Bern based artists known for his architecturally-minded platforms of sound.
