Zoro Feigl seems to constantly wonder why things are going the way they are. And to understand that, he mimics nature, machines or the effects of materials and techniques. His works are typically comprised of industrial materials such as cables, fluorescent tubes, ropes and chains, challenging him to discover new patterns and movements. This way, he makes you a part of his wonder and shows a parallel world that is constantly in motion.
Art Listing’s Indra Devriendt writes about Feigl’s "Twisted Nematics" which is currently on view as part of the exhibition "Sea-change" at Fred&Ferry:
“There’s a rotating disc covered with a layer of temperature-sensitive lacquer mounted to one gallery walls. The hot water flowing over it creates shades of colour and ever-changing patterns. A similar effect is obtained by a rotating oil and dye barrel. We see a gradual overlap from one shape to another. Constantly changing motifs are formed by its continuous movement. The unique appearance, temporality and unpredictability makes us curious about what is to come and keep us captivated.”
Feigl can make a piece of linoleum dance like a ballerina, giving something ordinary a magical edge.
