Hermès - The Gift of Time exhibition Singapore visit

Held in the historic setting of Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, the Hermès Gift of Time exhibition did not disappoint. A small yet sufficiently sized exhibition, with thought provoking installations, designed by American artist Hilton McConnico. I won't go into detail as I wouldn't want to spoil the exhibition for those who have yet to visit! Some added extras to the exhibition worth highlighting include access to part of the old unused railway tracks where you can take pictures, a food court offering some tempting tasty Singaporean food where you can sit and eat in cute train carriage style booths, a sweet shop selling nostalgic sweets, and even having the opportunity to write a Hermès Gift of Time exhibition postcard, which the exhibition will post to anywhere in the world. This exhibition ends on the 12th August and is free...so go and see it!
