For you who live in modern society and are busy all day, time is your enemy? Or your friend? How would you describe the person ‘time’? In the eyes of Hermès Hermès, a French high-end fashion brand, time is a loyal ally with deep relationships, and through the brand from April 29 to May 14, the ‘Crafting Time-Time Craft’ haute horoscope held in the Bellavita Hermes flagship store. The exhibition will allow you to have a different perspective on time.
Enamel painting: lively, intense, flashing
Metalworking sculpture: a unique dance that is hollow and not stale
Complex watchmaking: gear meshing, traction rotation, gentle pace every minute
Crystal Art: Burning clot, slow circle cutting, serene ballet dance
Jewellery inlay: fascinating, pleasing, unexpected perspective
In this exhibition, the brand collaborated with artist Guillaume Airiaud. He created space art installations and watches combined with countless cubes, presenting five kinds of craftsmanship applied to Hermès high-end watches: enamel painting, crystal art , Complex watchmaking, metalworking engraving and jewelry setting, many of which were released at this year’s Basel Watch Fair, and immediately came to Taiwan to display in front of brand lovers.
Hermès invited Ms. Nathalie Rolland-Huckel, a French lacquer artist, to come to Taiwan to demonstrate the lacquer painting process to the audience.
In the space created by artist Guillaume Airiaud, the alternation of colors evokes day or night scenes. Professional watchmaking techniques are presented one by one through metaphorical scenes imagined by the artist: the crystal melts in fire; the enamel powder becomes stained glass windows; Miniature jigsaws make the metalworking engraved components dance; rainbow-like collages are reminiscent of the dazzling flare of diamonds on various cut surfaces … Various elements continue to move in accordance with the laws of time in the mechanism of time.
