rAndom International : “Rain Room at the Barbican”

::

::

Music by Max Richter
Filming by Gramafilm

::

Random International invites you to experience what it’s like to control the rain. Visitors can choose to simply watch the spectacle or find their way carefully through the rain, putting their trust in the work to the test. More than the technical virtuosity necessary for its success, the piece relies on a sculptural rigour, with the entire Curve transformed by the monumental proportions of a carefully choreographed downpour and the sound of water. R.I. are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experiments come alive through audience interaction and staged performance…

Elín Hansdóttir : ‘Path’ (Site-Specific Installation)

::

Elín Hansdóttir’s site-specific installations take many forms, including auditory or optical illusions, labyrinthian tunnels and motion-activated architectural elements. Hansdóttir creates self-contained worlds that seem to operate under their own set of rules, completely transforming a benign space into one that defies expectations and seems only to exist at a particular moment in time. Though her site-specific installations are complex in construction and technical craft, they take on a stark aesthetic, so that her work operates as a kind of blank slate for viewer experience and interaction.

Path is a site-specific labyrinthine structure that weaves through each space it inhabits, filling the physical area with its winding course. Each exhibition site dictates the form of the zigzagging tunnel. Working with the boundaries determined by the external space, the structure is outlined directly on the floor, with the objective of having the structure occupy as much of the site as possible, thus creating a unique shape each time. The only light source emanates from vertical and horizontal slits throughout the construction. Due to the structure´s sharp edges, the light is dispersed in such a way that one mistakes shadows for walls, walls for space, and light for walls…

Myth and fairy tales have been considered at all times by the artist, since in them is concentrated much human knowledge. The eternal questions that present themselves to every generation to seek and answer (Why I’m here at all?, What’s the point of my existence? Where did I come from and where am I going?) are highlighted in myths and fairy tales and always have been. Therefore, they are still the basis of inspiration for many artists, because they contain such fertile ground for the exploration of existential questions. This is certainly true of Simona Pries, a trained sculptor and architect, whose large installation shown four years ago in Celle Castle, explicitly refers to the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” by the Brothers Grimm. Pries presents in her cases three identical translucent fabrics, their shape is reminiscent of the structural modules of Minimalist Art and it is clear in each case that they have the same deck visible, as we know from hospitals. The call isn’t only the memory of a hundred-year sleep of a Princess, but also the fragility and finite nature of man. From four speakers we hear the story of “Sleeping Beauty”, whilst the beds of colored light seem to be from some long forgotten dream. She reminds us that our life is dangerous, full of pain and injuries, tests and crises, but that every crisis also holds the opportunity for growth… – [Extract : Text – “Of myths and fairy tales” – Michael Stoeber]

Zimoun : ‘Sculpting Sound’ (Installations)

::

::

Solo Exhibition : The Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, USA.
October 11, 2011 – January 08, 2012

Curated by Matthew McLendon.

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 curiously collected material, 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 blends effortlessly with electric reverberation in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions. (bitforms nyc)

The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic». It’s an artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviors in sound and motion. Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns. (Tim Beck)
