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 lives and works in Bern. Recent displays of his work include exhibitions at the Nam June Paik Art Museum, bitforms gallery, Kunsthalle Bern, Seoul Museum of Art, Art Basel, MNC Bucharest, National Art Museum Beijing, Museum of Fine Arts Lugano among others. Zimoun has been awarded different art prizes and residencies and has served as a guest lecturer. Zimoun is the co-founder of Leerraum.ch – a platform publishing works which explore forms and structures based on reductive principles and systems.

Zimoun’s work will be on display as part of the exhibition ‘the fluidity aspect’, which runs from the 25th of September until the 5th of October. Find more information about the exhibition here.
