25 September - 5 October
Zoro Feigl creates mainly large scale installations which seem to be alive. His works continuously change shape, slowly or rapidly, nervous or gracious.
The materials dance and twist. The installations bring to mind single-cell creatures, primitive organisms. Without beginning or end the objects seem to be locked into themselves. Feigl follows the laws of physics, but he tries to balance between what mechanics itself brings and what he can do with a minimal gesture to display the aesthetics of technical mechanisms. As a viewer you become entangled in their movements: they embrace and amaze, but sometimes also frighten you.
His new installation ‘Structural Intensity’ is a shape that is hissing and puffing to maintain its shape, thereby encapsulating itself. Struggling between power and elegance, the machine is trying to escape it’s own embrace.
Feigl has been a part of deSERVICEGARAGE and is a founding member of Kafana. Feigl’s studio practice is based in Amsterdam but he often resides in China or works on location for extended periods.
Zoro Feigl’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.
