Sabrina Ratté for Watches&Wonders Geneva


On the occasion of Watches & Wonders in Geneva, Hermès invites us to travel, discover and adventure through an immersive work that unfolds in space a phantasmagorical escapade. The installation, Le temps qui court le monde, imagined by Canadian artist Sabrina Ratté, takes us into the universe of Hermès time. It presents in space the main lines of the new Arceau watch: Arceau Le temps voyageur. An ode to discovery, it combines the rigor of an object designed to pass through time with the fantasy of Hermès time. A singular approach to mechanical watchmaking, it offers a playful and fantastic reading of the world's hours. It is a beautiful escape, which seems to realize our dream of ubiquity: to be everywhere at once, to travel the world in a few steps. The installation makes the link between traditional know-how and contemporary technologies, which allow us to cross time and space. By playing with these possibilities, the artist transports us from one from one country to another, and takes us through territories transformed by his imagination. We first discover twelve interactive landscapes, echoes of time zones. Inside the atrium, a monumental panorama unfolds before the unfolds before the visitor's eyes. By raising his head, he discovers a celestial cartography, strewn with constellations.
