Cyrill Lim and Marcel Zaes
Shown at Granoff Center, Providence RI, 2020
The realization of this work was funded in part by the Brown Arts Initiative and in part by the Canton of Zug, Switzerland.
Lim & Zaes’ new installation piece collects various visual, tactile, sonic and human-made phenomena, all of which unfold at, and on, the material surfaces that are on display. The pieces are sculptural, and yet they stand in as placeholders for that which is absent. They open themselves to the visitor’s actual and imaginative perception. In a sense, these pieces may be, to the artists as much as to the visitors, a land unknown.
