In a Dreamy Landscape: Sumakshi Singh's Installation for Hermès
At the Hermès store in New Delhi, India, Sumakshi Singh (MFA 2003) presents her intricate thread and laceworks for the window display at the Chanakya. Titled Pages from a Dream Journal, Singh invites passersby to immerse in a luminous and ethereal landscape created out of a luminous silk bird, LED fireflies, white blossoms, and embroidered mountains. Teacups and accessories by the fashion house are spread through the scene. According to Vogue India, the installation is “conceptualised almost like a page from an ongoing story, which is both poetic and meditative.” Singh is the first artist to collaborate with Hermès in India for its window displays.
