Hermes Maison is delighted to announce an encounter between Hermes and Robert Wilson, the acclaimed Director and Visual Artist, to introduce at Cedar Lake the installation entitled Here Elsewhere.
An exploration of the oxymoron which exists at the heart of the Hermes Maison Universe as interpreted by Robert Wilson. It seeks to articulate contrasts between physical materiality and timelessness of creative imagination; the balance between rigor and fantasy.
Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Artistic Director of Hermes has invited Robert Wilson to create an original installation work within which video portraits and live performers will interact with collections from the Hermes Maison Universe, crafting a unique relationship between man and objects.
It’s not about creating a “dream house”; it’s about the dream of a house and the emotional reaction that this immersive installation provokes.
Hermes has long been a purveyor and pioneer of furniture and home accessories since the 1920’s, beginning with collections designed by Jean-Michel Frank. Today, Hermes collections for the home include furniture, lighting, textiles & wall coverings, as well as objects and tableware — all overseen by newly appointed Maison Universe Artistic Directors, Charlotte Macaux Perelman and Alexis Fabry.
