Exhibition - L' éloge de l'heure (Telling Time)

From 22/01/2017 to 30/04/2017 - CPI : 20/01/2017

The vocabulary of watchmaking uses poetic and evocative language to express the plethora of ways employed to display the time - how about wandering hours, mysterious time, digital time, hands in the air or singing hours? With a great wink to the inventiveness of watchmakers of yesteryear, Telling Time presents works by contemporary artists and designers, which all share the same desire to tell the time. The more recent creations often build upon and adapt Each of these domains - watchmaking, art and design - brings its own particular resonance, its own poetry and aesthetic language. The exhibition builds bridges from one subject to another, in an unexpected, curious and funny way. Exhibition concieved and produced by the mudac (Lausanne).
