Hermès created H Box, both an annual commission of video art works, and a travelling screening space. Created by the artist, architect and designer, Didier Fiuza Faustino, H Box is a work of art in itself, a sort of mobile and functional “camera obscura”. The programme of video works has been entrusted to Benjamin Weil, director of Artists Space in New York. For this first edition, the choice has fallen upon eight very diverse, upcoming artists: Alice Anderson, Yael Bartana, Sebastián Diaz Morales, Dora García, Judit Kurtág, Valérie Mréjen, Shahryar Nashat and Su-Mei Tse.

Consisting of two entirely collapsible modules constructed of aluminium and Plexiglas, H Box can be assembled, disassembled and transported as required. Raised 30 cm above the ground on its adjustable feet and swivel wheels, it might look as if it were taking off were it not for the gangway that offers access to the interior. The principal facade, entirely transparent, is more than a window or an invitation to enter: an eye on the world, a direct access to light, it makes H Box a private space open to the images around. The cutting-edge sound and image technology draws viewers deep into the projected art.
