2015 is under the theme “Flâner” at Hermès. We’ve been commissioned for two tailor made installations in the exhibition aimed to present the “Flânerie” universe.
The first one, simply named Flâner presents a selection of scenes from classical movies representing what wandering means in France. The clips are flying around under a disco ball, growing at some moments all around.
The second installation is a collaborative work with Ugo Gattoni, a video mapping on one of his monumental drawing. A whole world around the exit door comes to life with light magic.
SIGMASIX is a Geneva - based experimental studio combining a large spectrum of practices with a focus on lighting design, scenography, museography and installations. Each project is seen as a new take on existing technologies, interactive strategies, and a new opportunity to merge techniques and art to offer unique and exceptional experiences.
As a practice Sigmasix is in a constant search for magic and poetry obtained by allowing alien technologies cohabit together. The studio’s ambition is to repurpose technologies to spaces and objects. It does so with an extraordinary capacity in integrating technicalities to the point of dilution where perception breaks down to the core of the concept.
Initiated in 2004 by Swiss artists Eric Morzier and Florian Pittet, SIGMASIX works both on art and research projects as much as commercial and consulting ones. Today, the studio has a small team of four people and works with a vast network of freelancers and interns to make sure all project and ideas are aligned with each and every client’s needs.
