Talk­ing About TIME

Marie Claire (Malaysia) - - Culture -

Her­mès re­dis­cov­ers an ob­ject born of un­com­pro­mis­ing ex­per­tise by tak­ing its vis­i­tors on a jour­ney through time in Time, A Her­mès Ob­ject.

With a show for­mu­lated by Lon­don-based com­pany Gan­dini Jug­gling, Her­mès un­veils a vast play­ground, rein­vent­ing time as an ob­ject that can be stretched, split, or turned up­side down in the man­ner of a kalei­do­scope. The one hour show will see comic sketches, light­hearted sub­ver­sion of rules, and pe­cu­liar char­ac­ters min­gling with guests. Later, the ex­pe­ri­ence con­tin­ues with scenog­ra­phy de­signed to both in­trigue and dis­com­fort the au­di­ence. Two-way mir­rors, dis­ap­pear­ing sil­hou­ettes, and in­ter­ac­tive screens cap­ti­vate guests as time un­con­sciously slips away.

Af­ter trav­el­ing from Basel­world, Ja­pan, and the United States, the ex­hi­bi­tion makes its fourth stop in Sin­ga­pore from 27 Oc­to­ber to 5 Novem­ber at Her­mès Takashimaya and Ngee Ann City Level 1 Atrium. Ad­mis­sion is free.
