Daniel Zimmermann (b. 1966, CH) is a visual artist and film-maker. His films, installations and performances touch the interface between visual art and action. The artist reacts to situations and environments and questions the meaning and sustainability of human behaviour. The Swiss artist’s one-person exhibition is his first retrospective. It presents the new film installation Walden in the context of older videos, photographs and installations that through their juxtaposition emphasise the diversity of his practice. A publication on Walden will accompany the exhibition.
Shortly before digging in preparation for the extension to the Kunsthaus Pasquart, in 1998 Daniel Zimmermann, who at the time lived and worked in Biel, laid out a structural area with 10’000 wooden strips. The ground plan of the extension determined the form and the size of the work. Within this limited space he created over eight days free constellations, independent from any rules. The artist carried out this physically tiring ritual as though he was playing an oversized Mikado.
