Zim & Zou's Odyssey in Space Installation for Hermes Japan Is a Colorful JourneyHop on the ‘Journey of a Lifetime.’
French art studio Zim & Zou imagines the theme of “Odyssey” for Hermès‘ window display in Japan in their latest venture. The window and installation don blue and pink tones with the latter as a nod to the pink-themed Isetan department store in Shinjuku.
Titled Journey of a Lifetime, the installation sees an astronaut-like main character piloting through other-worldly planets surrounded by aliens, which translates to people as protagonists of their lives exploring their odysseys. The complex spaceship cockpit with joysticks and panels which the character navigates is said to be a metaphor for life choices humans make. Other meaningful details of the paper-sculpted artwork include an opened safe which symbolizes setting free one’s treasures and demonstrates materials’ weightlessness.
From now to mid-February 2022, Zim & Zou’s Journey of a Lifetime window installation will be on display at the Hermès store in Isetan Shinjuku, Tokyo. Check out more of Zim & Zou’s artwork on their website.
