Robert Wilson “Here Elsewhere” immersive installation with objects from the Hermès Maison Universe at Cedar Lake, New York

Stage director Robert Wilson has created a surreal universe of five themed rooms, titled Here Elsewhere, to present Hermès’ new Maison collections.

“I’ve never experienced anything like this,” Wilson says of being commissioned by Hermès to the New York Times. “I felt an affinity with Hermès, seeing the work still today being manufactured by hand. I felt an identification with their attention to detail. To me, the most beautiful things in our lives are drawings, textiles, glass and pottery,” Wilson says. “A pot is made by hand. A glass is blown. A drawing by hand. A textile is woven. They are handcrafted, which comes from the soul.”
