LAST CHANCE Zimoun
The Spring show at NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery is a major new exhibition by the Swiss installation artist Zimoun, curated by Maya Allison (Executive Director of the gallery) and featuring five immersive audio-visual installations,
Zimoun creates immersive sensory experiences using lo-fi, analogue motors connected to various functional objects, like wooden sticks, cardboard boxes, and foil. All the sound in his installations comes from the movement of these simple objects. When a visitor walks into one of his minimalistic mechanised sculptures, they’re confronted with a unique and compelling visual soundscape, one that simultaneously evokes the urban experience while eliciting almost physical memories of natural sounds (rain, sandstorms, or wind).
