Icaro Zorbar

Portrait

Born in 1977 in Bogota (Colombia), lives and works in Bergen (Norway)

Icaro Zorbar’s reincarnations of obsolete technologies are done with affection and nostalgia for an era that his generation can hardly remember. The artist is particularly interested in the humanisation of technology and highlights the aesthetic value of his toy-like machines, which he calls "little monsters." They lie somewhere between works of art, machines, and games. Icaro Zorbar’s works, like Sympathy for the Devil, for example, plunge the audience into a visual and sound environment consisting of screens, science fiction, and mirrors. They are a disturbing reflection of an era that has already vanished.
