Official description

Fashion designer Ek Thongprasert's latest collection is showcased alongside contemporary artworks at the "Exhibition 13 Believe?" at Broccoli Revolution restaurant on Sukhumvit 49 until Nov 13.

The vegan restaurant has been turned into an offbeat art space for the exhibition that links fashion and fine arts together.

Inspired by the belief system of society, Ek's autumn/winter collection 2016, titled "Believe", communicates the belief system of a person, dividing the thinking system into three steps based on the psychological model of decision process or cognitive process, which consists of information, analysis and decision-making.

Fashion meets fine art

Fashion designer Ek Thongprasert's latest collection is showcased alongside contemporary artworks at the "Exhibition 13 Believe?" at Broccoli Revolution restaurant on Sukhumvit 49 until Nov 13.

The vegan restaurant has been turned into an offbeat art space for the exhibition that links fashion and fine arts together.

Inspired by the belief system of society, Ek's autumn/winter collection 2016, titled "Believe", communicates the belief system of a person, dividing the thinking system into three steps based on the psychological model of decision process or cognitive process, which consists of information, analysis and decision-making.

The three artists, who have selected some of the works created under a similar concept from their previous exhibitions as part of the show, are Sanitas Pradittasnee, Watanya Siriwan and Kawita Vatanajyankur.

Sanitas communicates the essence of belief through an architectural structure like chedi (Buddhist stupa) in order to raise the question of what we're worshipping.

The spirit house made of fabrics by Watanya interprets religious beliefs through the use of embroidery, highlighting the link between life and religion. While some are wondering whether her craftwork is a sacrilegious act, the artist wants them to reconsider if the thing we actually pay respect to is what's inside it. Kawita's video art touches on inequality, feminism and women's rights. She represents herself as household objects to talk about housework that never ends and how a woman identifies with these objects. It is a metaphor for the disappearance of one's identity and reminds the artist of the usual dharma term that "there's no me or mine".
