JAEGER-LECOULTRE PRESENTS A NEW ART INSTALLATION “PASSENGERS: THROUGH TIME” BY FRENCH ARTIST GUILLAUME MARMIN
Among the highlights of The Stellar Odyssey, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s celebration of the relationship between astronomical phenomena and watchmaking, the Swiss Maison presents a new art installation Passengers: Through Time specially commissioned from the French visual artist, Guillaume Marmin under its Made of Makers programme.
The work will make its world debut in Dubai in February, in conjunction with The Stellar Odyssey exhibition following its first introduction in the Vallée de Joux in May 2022. Enriching the dialogue that has long existed between horology, artisanship and art, Made of Makers is a profound expression of the core principles that have defined Jaeger-LeCoultre for 190 years: creativity, expertise and precision.
In partnership with Jaeger-LeCoultre, Guillaume Marmin created an entirely new chapter for his acclaimed installation, Passengers. This second chapter, Passengers: Through Time, focuses on celestial and astronomical observation, offering its visitors – or passengers – an exploration of the links between time, space and light, as described by the theory of relativity.
