With his very original visual language Zin Taylor (b. 1978, Calgary, Canada) directly relates to the architectural conditions he finds on site. Taylor has a strong interest in storytelling and has already published numerous artist books with drawings, autobiographical notes and anecdotes. In his sculptural work, Taylor pursues questions about how ideas and thoughts can find a form and materialise into objects. What shape do ideas take, that are spreading rapidly? For Taylor, they are floating like invisible clouds, like haze through the world and become form by meeting surfaces and objects, by condensing, so to speak.

 

In his solo exhibition at Westfälischer Kunstverein Zin Taylor will present new, site-specific works. These new works are very closely related, in fact, can be understood as one composition made out of sculptures hanging from the ceiling, a soundtrack and immersive wall drawings of black and white creatures.

 

 

 

Zin Taylor lives and works in Paris.

 

A publication accompanying the exhibition will be published.
