Official description

The French embassy in Thailand and the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture of the Ministry of Culture is holding the "Made By Paris?" exhibition by designer Wisharawish Akarasantisook at the Adler Subhashok Gallery on Sukhumvit 39 from Wednesday to March 16.

Wisharawish hails from the Northeastern province of Buri Ram.

His exhibition was influenced by his six-month sojourn in Paris when he was chosen from Thailand to attend the Cité Internationale des Arts in France, which offers a platform to further enhance the talents of professional artists from around the globe.

During his stay in Paris, Wisharawish was immersed in contemporary arts, design and fashion, and his exhibition is the result of his encounters and impressions of observing how Parisians reside, their lifestyles and environment, as well as the sights and sounds felt in the City of Lights.

The exhibition is presented in two parts. The first one, the "Imaginary Map" collection, consists of 24 collages of pictures, wordings and articles on A4-size paper. Each "map" showcases life in Paris and Parisians’ perspective towards freedom of design.

The second part, called "The Artisans", is presented in textile format combined with photographs. All seven photographs tell the viewers stories of Wisharawish himself while in Paris. The photographs were printed on fabric before being cut into small pieces, and woven with thread by traditional technique from his hometown.

Wisharawish's background in dramatic arts has played a pivotal role in his ability to focus on the craftsmanship between Thailand and France with preciseness.
