The reincarnations of obsolete technologies by Ícaro Zorbar are made with affection and nostalgia for a time that their generation can barely remember. The artist is particularly interested in the humanization of technology and highlights the aesthetic value of his toy-like machines, which he calls “little monsters”. They are somewhere in between works of art, machines and games. Ícaro Zorbar’s works, such as Sympathy for the Devil, for example, immerse the public in a visual and sound environment consisting of screens, science fiction and mirrors. They are a disturbing reflection of an era that has already vanished.
Ícaro Zorbar lives and works in Norway and his work belongs to collections in Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, the United States, Austria and Luxembourg.
