Swiss artist Zimoun, known for his appropriation of everyday materials, has installed one of his largest animated sculpture pieces yet. The artwork uses 2,030 cardboard boxes, 435 DC-motors and 750 metres of aluminium rope, and is displayed at the Godsbanen centre in Aarhus, Denmark.
A video of the hypnotic artwork has also been released, to give a glimpse of the wall coming to life. The boxes reverberate in a constant rhythm, which at this scale in such a large space becomes all the more dramatic. Each box is subtly moving, which across the 2030 boxes creates a rippling effect and a loud, constant, echoing hum.
The show is part of The Overheard exhibition series curated by two Danish composers and sound artists Marie Koldkjær Højlund and Morten Riis. Zimoun’s piece was built by a team including 70 local volunteers, shown in this time lapse film, and all the materials used for the installation (except the tape on the boxes) will be reused.
The exhibition is on at Godsbanen, Aarhus until 30 March.
