Hâte-toi lentement: Time in questions!

From October 6, 2023 to October 31, 2024


“Hâte-toi lentement: Time in questions” invites visitors to reflect on their relationship with time through four major themes that illustrate their relationship with time through the ages: Natural time, Personified time, Free time and Modern time. Made up of animated and theatrical showcases and interactive stations, “Haste-toi lentement” is an exhibition for families and the general public that looks at the commonplace and imaginary places that mark out our perception and conception of time.

Can time smell? Is a watch alive? Have watches always been on time? A number of “time users” have tried to answer these questions by sharing a fragment or image of their vision of time.

Many of the pieces come from the Espace Horloger’s collection of antique clocks (the Gideon collection), some of which have never before been exhibited. They will be set against more recent pieces, creating unexpected contrasts – all presented in a playful scenography that will appeal to all the senses. Visitors will be able to take time to play, draw their own vision of time, reflect on their relationship with time, and sign up for workshops throughout the exhibition.
