From 11 June to 18 September 2016 a large cultural event will be held, the European art biennial Manifesta. The eleventh staging of the Manifesta places the topic of professions and their activities at the centre of artistic dialogue.
The watch brand Panerai is an official partner of Manifesta 11 and Les Ambassadeurs serves as the host of this interesting project.
The official inauguration of the artwork "The World is Cuckoo (Clock)" from Jon Kessler took place on 08 June 2016 in front of the watchmaking workshop of the Les Ambassadeurs boutique on Bahnhofstrasse.
In total, 38 art installations and objects in Zurich and Winterthur will be presented. At Les Ambassadeurs the well-known artist Jon Kessler from New York will present his piece of work which he created together with the Panerai watchmaker Adriano Toninelli. In this sculpture, traditional watchmaking and modern tools meet. During the biennial the work can be admired in the basement vis-à-vis our own in-house watch workshop in the Zurich Les Ambassadeurs boutique on Bahnhofstrasse.
