Hermès Petit exhibition in Seoul
From November 22nd to December 17th
in Maison Hermès Dosan Park
Hermès is delighted to announce that Petit h will be arriving at the Maison Hermès Dosan Park in Seoul from November 22nd, 2017 to December 17th.
Created in 2010 by Pascale Mussard, a member from the 6th generation of the Hermès family, Petit h is a creative laboratory bringing together under the same roof artists, designers, Hermès materials cutouts and know-how. A scrap of leather falls from the leather craftsman’s cutting table. It won’t be used for a bag. This piece of leather, a noble material selected by Hermès, becomes raw material for a new object. Thanks to artists’ unconventional ways of seeing things paired with the expert hands of Hermès craftsmen, Petit h gives a second life to these unused “treasures” found and gathered at Hermès.
For the Seoul exhibition in Maison Hermès Dosan Park, the artist Yeondoo Jung presents a scenography that features the beauty of changing seasons in magical mystery. The venue will be transformed into a kinetic art space with full of surprising and optical illusion. Yeondoo Jung, one of the three finalists of 2004 Hermès Foundation Missulsang, is actively engaged in the art scene as a contem¬porary artist who explores the border between reality and imagination and listens to the voices of people today through various mediums such as photography, videography, magic and performances.
Petit h has anchored its ateliers in Pantin, in the outskirts of Paris, and a permanent store on Hermès left bank store on rue de Sèvres (17 rue de Sèvres, 75006, Paris). It is also available at temporary travelling sales around the world. After Rome in March in this year, it awaits Seoul in November for the first time and next year it will travel to Hong-Kong.
Petit h exclusive creations for the Seoul exhibition will be presented in Maison Hermès Dosan Park from November 22nd until December 17th, 2017.
