About Zimoun

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, born in Switzerland, is a self-taught artist based in Bern. His work has been
presented in solo and group shows as well as performances in Europe, North America, Asia,
Africa and South America. Zimoun has been awarded different art prizes and residencies and
has served as a guest lecturer.

Recent displays of his work include exhibitions at the Nam June Paik Art Center in Korea;
the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei; Art Basel; Galerie Denise René Paris; the Ringling
Museum of Art, Florida; bitforms gallery New York; Kunsthalle Bern; Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein;
the Contemporary Art Museum MNAC Bucharest, among others.
