after dubai, munich, london and new york, singapore has been chosen by patek philippe as the venue for the fifth watch art grand exhibition that offered in-depth insights into its universe and its creations. the centerpiece 100 colors flowers by emmanuelle moureaux welcomed visitors as they entered the first room of the exhibition, the singapore 200th anniversary room. colorful and immersive, the installation reflects how time flows gently as if the space has its own time, while its hand-assembled petals capture the immense precision of patek philippe master craftsmen & watchmakers. drawing from the beauty, color and fragrance of frangipani flowers, the piece also reflects the beauty, spirit and dynamism of singapore. emmanuelle moureaux dyes 11,500 flowers in 100 colors for patek philippe installation

 

 

emmanuelle moureaux begun her 100 colors installation series in 2013, forming space with the use of 100 shades of colors. through the series, moureaux wishes to give emotions through colors as she felt from seeing overflowing ‘colors’ in tokyo when she first visited in 1995. she also wishes to give opportunities for people to see, touch and feel colors with their senses to become more conscious of colors that exist around them. in 100 colors, colors are explored in various forms depending on the environment, to maximize the beauty of colors. 100 colors entering the body with a glance triggers a physical response to engage with the sensation of colors. the installation series will continue to travel around the world.

‘when I first arrived in tokyo, I was fully fascinated by the colors overflowing on the street,’ explains moureaux, ‘in that very moment, my mind decided to move to japan. overwhelming number of store signs, flying electrical cables, and flashes of blue sky framed by various volumes of buildings, created three dimensional “layers” in the city. the flood of various colors pervaded the street built up a complex depth and intensity in the space. these indelible experiences of colors and layers in tokyo were the inspiration and essence of my design concept of “shikiri”, which means dividing (creating) space with colors. valuing the emotion inspired from tokyo, I want to show the beauty of colors to the fullest extent. I also wish to share the feeling of being surrounded by overflowing colors by exhibiting 100 colors, here in the middle of tokyo. please come and find your favorite color.’
