Damien Hirst & Officine Panerai Unite for Watches & Wonders Miami Exhibition

“It symbolizes our commitment to enduring progress.”

Officine Panerai and Damien Hirst have partnered up for a special exhibition at Watches & Wonders Miami 2018. The showcase will display two “spin painting” pieces from Hirst: Beautiful Sunflower Panerai Painting and Beautiful Fractional Sunflower Panerai Painting, both from 2011. The former will be at the Moore Building’s Telling Time Exhibition, while the latter will be displayed at PAnerai’s Miami Design District flagship boutique. Both works are collaborative efforts from Panerai and Hirst, who has placed the famed watchmaker’s timepieces in some of his pieces.

“I love Panerai. The watches are timeless and I made this spin painting using black Panerai watch faces without hands in the pattern of the seeds in the head of sunflower,” Hirst explains via press statement. I hope the painting makes you think, we are here for a good time, not a long time.”

“I think you will be pleasantly surprised at what we have presented. It symbolizes our commitment to enduring progress, with a distinctive design, which is the essence of Panerai’s appeal,” adds Officine Panerai CEO Angelo Bonati.

To check out Panerai and Damien Hirst’s exhibit, pay a visit to Miami between February 16 – 19 to check out Watches & Wonders.

At the beginning of last month, Hirst took over an 18th century mansion for a new painting exhibit.
