Zimoun is a contemporary artist with a studio located in Bern, Switzerland. He is most known for his sound sculptures, sound architectures and installation art that combine raw, industrial materials such as cardboard boxes, plastic bags, or old furniture, with mechanical elements such as dc-motors, wires, microphones, speakers and ventilators.

«Zimoun blends elements of sound, sculpture, mechanics, and engineering into unique sensory experiences redefining traditional notions of sculpture and sonic performance.» Ringling Museum of Art

«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.» bitforms gallery nyc

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; Seoul Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts Bern, Harnett Museum of Art, Richmond; among others.
