ZEROS is a large-scale kinetic sculpture formed by nine massive inner tubes that move to a slow choreography. The artwork occupies a large part of the exhibition space, dwarfing visitors into constrained viewpoints and navigation patterns.
The solemn movements of the piece evoke the image of an enormous animal that shifts ponderously, in a visual and spatial experience dominated by the intense contrast of the black shapes against the hard red light.
This monumental sculpture marks SpY’s first commission for an Asian museum. The work is installed at the main hall of the Times Art Museum in Beijing, China, as part of the exhibition “Wavelength, a Momentary Spring”.
