Zoro Feigl – Kite Flock

''I would like to build a relation with the audience by creating works that have a strong visual attraction and where the audience can become part of the work.''

Zoro Feigl – Kite Flock

Zoro Feigl lives and works in Amsterdam. He graduated from the Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam and the Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunst, Gent. The installations of Zoro Feigl seem to be alive. His materials dance and twist. Placed together in a space, the separate works become one: large and ponderous in places, nervous or gracious elsewhere. Feigl’s forms are constantly changing, sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly. The exhibition space becomes an enlarged microscope: single-celled creatures, primitive organisms, are twisting, groaning and convulsing. Without beginning or end the objects seem to be locked into themselves. As a viewer you become entangled in their movements: they embrace and amaze, but sometimes also frighten you. Zoro Feigl’s work has been shown internationally at various exhibitions, including the National Art Museum of China, Galeria de Arte do SESI Sao Paulo, Artplay Moscow, A+B Contemporary Italy, 0gms Sofia, Verbeke Foundation Belgium, Kulturhuset Stockholm, Self Surface Stuttgart, Black Door Istanbul and several institutes in the Netherlands such as Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, MU, DordtYart, Het Nieuwe Instituut, W139, Art et Amicitea and Fons Welters. He has curated several exhibitions, has been a part of De ServiceGarage and is a founding member of Kafana. The large scale installations by Zoro Feigl seem to be alive, bringing to mind single-cell creatures, primitive organisms. 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. For TodaysArt, he will perform his ‘Kite flock’, a cloud of kites that swarm around one another like spermatoza or fireflies. Entangled to ropes in a branching structure the kites are constantly in a tug of war creating odd movements
