For its 13th Carte Blanche, the Hermès store at Hong Kong International Airport is exhibiting a piece by French artists Zim and Zou,’The Eternal Jungle’, which is an invitation into the wild.
Hermès Window Installation
The window installation creates an intriguing contrast between the jungle, a world that is dominated by wild animals, and one of great refinement, the world of Hermès.
The window is influenced by the abundance of vegetation in Hong Kong and showcases Hermès accessories (such as scarves, jewelry, bets and ties) and a Monkey, a Toucan and a Chameleon crafted of leather off-cuts from the workshops of Hermès.
The installation displays the finest skills in paper-cut art and leatherwork. Remaining faithful to its original purity, the artists create intricate objects with the paper, a material both beautiful and versatile.
Now, a close look at the impressively crafted animals.
Some of you may recall that I previously posted about the work of Zim and Zou when I featured their retro 80’s tech products made entirely out of paper.
