THE ART PIECE
ECHO OF TIME
Inspired by the intangible and expandable qualities of the temporal, Mr Nakanishi and Mr Richter have each created a piece that come together in an encounter that explores the fundamental properties of time suspended – the very basis for La Prairie’s Platinum Moment.
A sculptural, immersive piece by Nobuhiro Nakanishi, Echo of Time is a “layer drawing” featuring a series of photographs taken sequentially of Swiss Alps peaks at twilight. One can see the passage of time as a whole, as well as pinpoint each individual moment of its progression.
The buoyant, epic score of Max Richter composed exclusively for La Prairie accompanies Mr Nakanishi's piece, creating an immersive experience that transports the viewer on a journey
through time. Two interpretations of time suspended come together to create
The Platinum Moment.
The intimate installation is on display at West Bund Art and Design Shanghai in November 2020
In a new chapter in its pursuit of eternal timeless beauty – one which explores the relationship between time and its perception and empowers women to hold time in their hands – lies the inspiration for La Prairie to enter into this collaboration with two creative forces from the worlds of contemporary art and music.
