Aloft at Hermès presents Here from Here by Agathe Balliecourt. The exhibition will run from now to 5 Feb 2017. The installation in question addresses the notion of being present – “being where you are when you’re there” (Roni Horn)
Referencing a Japanese Zen garden, the showcase offers a moment or situation of being there, or better, here – a physical place and a moment in time. Individually painted gravel are layered and arranged to form an abstract landscape. This challenges the romantic image of the horizon which traditionally projects a past and/or the future with no contradiction and conflict.
