Sound in Motion

1 Feb 2014

Harnessing sound and space in works of minimalist power, the Swiss artist Zimoun explores the rhythm, flow and interaction between architectural spaces, commonplace objects and mechanical systems. In this major new work, specially created for the University of Brighton Gallery, Zimoun responds to the bright, sparce interior with his characteristic articulation of the tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life.

Zimoun combines the low-tech – plastic bags, cardboard boxes, old furniture – with mechanical components such as ventilators, speakers and microphones. His installations are all about making us re-evaluate the relationship between the visual, sonic and physical elements of a space.
