Nez à Nez

The exhibition Nez-à-Nez Contemporary perfumers at the Musée de design et d'arts appliqués contemporains (Mudac) in Lausanne consists of 6 bespoke installations that have been designed over 6 rooms. Each room presents a tendency from the contemporary world of perfume making, that have been identified by the curators.. 

Mudac called upon Glithero to create poetic and immersive installations displaying the fragrances from outstanding contemporary perfumers such as Jean-Claude Elena, Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Vero Kern, Dominique Ropion and Isabelle Doyen. The challenge of this exhibition was to make the immateriality of the perfumes tangible. This is particularly ambitious within a museological context, where the visual input is often given centre stage. Glithero’s response was to present the fragrances in ways that require the visitor to engage in novel ways but that leave room for the evocative impressions of the perfumes.

Curation by Musée de design et d'arts applicqués contemporains and the olfactory magazine Nez.
