Zimoun is famous for the installations that imply sound and movement. The interest revolves around electrical mechanisms. Another important feature is the space where the objects are exhibited – it’s an entire architectural setting, that pays attention to the way sound is transmitted and to the way the objects are visually perceived.
Here is the latest project which will be presented at Museo d’Arte di Lugano.
