Zimoun


Andy Knolle

Zimoun is a Swedish installation artist, primarily focuses on creating acoustic architectural environments using every day objects and simple motors. “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”. Being a completely self trained artist, I have tons of respect for him and what he makes. I have not actually experience any of his work in person, but he has been a huge influence on my conceptual/ philosophical ideas of sound. As I continue with my sound studies I find it more and more interesting that every object has its own sound, thus making every object have an addition use. Zimoun shares this idea with his minimalist architectural environments.
