Zimoun Studio announces three new installations by Zimoun. One of them is presented at the current solo exhibition in Mannheim, Germany (Kunstverein Mannheim, August 10 – September 21). This exhibition is a joint collaboration between Zimoun (artist) and Hannes Zweifel (architect).
20 prepared dc-motors, 81 cardboard boxes 70x70x70cm
Zimoun + Hannes Zweifel 2014

Motors, cardboard boxes, nylon, wood, metal, power supplies.
Dimensions: 10m x 10m x 6m.
Installation view: Mannheimer Kunstverein, Germany.
Exhibition: August 10 – September 21, 2014
Curated by Hortense Pisano and Martin Stather.

The installation is comprised of 81 cardboard boxes of 70x70x70 cm which are suspended on the ceiling in a grid of 80×80 cm. The boxes hang between floor and ceiling and can be seen from two different levels. 20 dc-motors are mounted and distributed along the handrail of the first floor. When activated, they set the boxes in motion by means of thinn nylon ropes connected vertically to the individual boxes, causing them to move with varying intensity and directions. Since the spaces between the boxes are small, the movement of one box is affecting neighboring boxes, leading to a very complex overall performance of the suspension, which constantly changes and progresses.

The collision of the boxes and the friction caused when they collide gives rise to a multitude of sounds and noises. The acoustic perspective changes as the viewer moves along the exhibition space and can be experienced in constantly new ways. This installation was conceptualized, developed and presented in joint collaboration between Zimoun (artist) and Hannes Zweifel (architect).
