Zoro FeiglSun-spark Spraying
Dutch artist Zoro Feigl has built his remarkable oeuvre with installations that roar and meander, are both exhilarating and terrifying, intimidate and then sooth. The works in Sun-spark spraying mark a new step in Feigl's oeuvre. He has succeeded in getting to the core of his artistic practice. The former rascal of Dutch art has grown up.
In his work, Zoro tries to capture natural phenomena and everyday things in installations. Think of the behavior of a swarm of starlings, ridges in the sand in the surf or glowworms on your retina, which you see if you close your eyes for a long time. Zoro tries to grasp these elusive situations and to unlock them in his work. Suddenly he is in control. Only for a moment, because when he turns on his installations, everything - the starlings, the glowworms - all go in a direction that he himself could never have predicted. The work itself becomes alive again. If you have seen his installations, sumptuously displayed in this stunningly designed, triangular book, you will notice wonder in everyday things that you had previously overlooked.
