    Sound Architectures, Sculptures & Installations
    Compilation Video V.3.1 / June 02, 2013

    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.

  4. Actuellement, Jean-François Lahos travaille à partir de ce qu'il nomme la mythopologie. À la manière dont on imagine des personnages et/ou scénarios en contemplant les nuages (paréidolie), les dessins offerts par le déploiement de polyèdres semblent nous dévoiler une mythologie inhérente à chaque objet. En étudiant intensivement le dépliage dans le but de créer des sculptures, l'artiste a observé qu’une multitude de patrons de découpe est disponible pour un seul volume. Ces derniers donnent souvent l’impression de former des familles d’entités dignes des constellations. Dans cette veine, en créant des dépliages de bois et/ou de métal, l'artiste souhaite créer une expérience captivante où l’imagination sera stimulée à la manière d’un test de Rorschach : ces images abstraites utilisées en psychologie. L’observateur a ainsi un accès intime à la genèse d’objets tel un archéologue dans un univers de polyèdres.

  6. California-based artist Tim Hawkinson is known for taking everyday materials and altering them in imaginative ways, creating works that address broad issues about the intersection of human consciousness, nature and technology. Here, he employed a mix of found objects and common household materials—including twist ties, craft wood, staples, and packing material—which he transformed almost alchemically into a complex and awe-inspiring sculpture.

    Echoing the working methods of ship-in-a-bottle hobbyists, Hawkinson created a painstakingly detailed model ship that twists in upon itself, presenting the viewer with a thought-provoking visual conundrum. The title is a witty play on Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick, which famously relates the tale of a ship captain’s all-consuming obsession with an elusive white whale. The ambitious and imaginative structure of Hawkinson’s sculpture offers an uncanny visual metaphor for Melville’s epic tale, which is often considered the ultimate American novel.

    Möbius Ship also humorously refers to the mathematical concept of the Möbius Strip. Named after a nineteenth-century astronomer and mathematician, the Möbius Strip is a surface that has only one side, and exists as a continuous curve. Its simple yet complex spatial configuration presents a visual puzzle that parallels Hawkinson’s transformation of the mundane materials into something unexpected.
