Hermès Presents “The Gift of Time”
In celebration of their theme for 2012, Hermès is pleased to welcome visitors to the historic Singapore Tanjong Pagar Railway Station for “The Gift of Time”.
In the course of a circular walk-through display representing time, American artist Hilton McConnico, scenographer, poet and long-time partner of Hermès, tells the story of Hermès time through poetic displays tinted with light humour, variety of colours and a series of sensory discoveries.
“Hermès time does not try to master time but rather offers us the time to see and understand this ever changing world”, says Hilton McConnico.
The visitor begins the walk contemplating the origin of time, before continuing on to free time, time suspended, in reverence to the watch, or to the stroke of time, reminding ts of the patina on objects. Finally, time will be dedicated to a moment of sharing and to the transmission of memories and thoughts.
If you're in Singapore sometime between 1st August through 12th August 2012, don't forget to check out the dreamlike exhibition space embellished by time and movement. Exhibition opens from 11am to 9pm daily. I personally think it's best to come during sunset. Admission is free. View more here.
