DOSAN PARK EVENTS

RE-OPENING OF DOSAN PARK

Maison Hermès Dosan Park, home to Hermes since November 2006, when it inaugurated as the fourth Maison Hermes in the world, has emerged as an important cultural forum, encouraging interaction and exchange between Hermès craftsmanship and a splendid local culture. In last May, we opened the doors of our newly renovated Maison Hermès Dosan Park. The first floor features the men’s universe, silk, watches, jewellery, and perfume, while the second floor is dedicated to the women’s universe, leather goods, and fashion accessories. The latest metamorphosis of the Maison is in step with the building’s uniquely original design and the traditions of Asian architecture: a sense of balance and space prevails throughout, evoking the symbolism of Yin and Yang.

Maison Hermès Dosan Park has played an important role in supporting and celebrating the work of Korean artists and an engaging dialogue with multiple artists is present throughout the store. Suspended on the third floor is a site-specific work by artist Haegue Yang, titled Sol LeWitt Upside Down – Cube Structures Based on Five Modules, Central One Expanded 184 Times, Another Expanded 66 Times then Doubled and Mirrored #81-E.

ATELIER HERMÈS EXHIBITION

Title: On the Corner of Londres and Allende Streets, 1938-1954
Artist: Rosa Maria Unda Souki
Period: December 8, 2017 – February 4, 2018

Atelier Hermès is pleased to present Rosa Maria Unda Souki’s solo exhibition On the Corner of Londres and Allende Streets, 1938-1954.

At the exhibition of Atelier Hermes, 35 recently completed paintings and a newly produced documentary video will be shown.

Rosa Maria Unda Souki’s work, which is based on the memory and dailiness of the intimate place of the “house” where someone lives or lived, builds up a poetic space in the flow of time, overlapping Frida Kahlo’s life with the life of Frida Kahlo’s house. Based on the iconographical and historical research of the Blue House, Rosa Maria Unda Souki carefully traces every corner of the Blue House where Frida Kahlo lived, as if to draw the portrait of Frida Kahlo, and recalls the memories and stories of the space and the place on her canvas. These intricate works, merged with facts and somewhat fantasies, are the result of Rosa Maria Unda Souki’s memory practice to retain the time passed (the past) in the eternal/present time of “painting.”

The year 2017 is the 110th anniversary of the birth of Frida Kahlo. It is a significant project that a young South American woman artist revisits the life and art of Frida Kahlo, a representative woman artist in South America (Mexico), through her space of life and art. It gives a meaningful occasion to think over again Frida Kahlo, who only stayed in myth, as well as to reconsider a woman’s life revisited from a woman’s perspective.

Petit h

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.
