Wicker works exhibition

The most creative wicker works from nine countries are being displayed during the "Asean Selections 2017 Innovative Craft Of Basketry" at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Pathumwan intersection, daily from 10am-9pm until this Sunday.

Organised by the Support Arts and Crafts International Centre of Thailand, the exhibition features eight sets of more than 50 works by eight artists and one grand-scale piece by one artist, all of whom won the "Asean Selections 2017" award.

Among the woven works on display are the TB's Bag/Basket set by Mexweel Ak Janlita from Brunei, who took inspiration from the conventional way of using black and white together on objects as a symbolic representation of the hope that handicraft products will last forever, and the Jungle set by Em Riem from Cambodia, who blends structural decorative designs and pure art to portray the feeling of human unity.

Laotian Phouvieng Saisnith presents the Spirit Handbag set that portrays the wisdom and culture embedded in natural bamboo basketry blended with embroidery showing silk threads and golden yarns. The only winning piece from Thailand is Spell Daybed Dome by Korakot Aromdee, who was inspired by nature to create a daybed for relaxation.

Other winning wicker works were created by Yayasan Mahakam Lestari from Indonesia, Erianna Daniel from Malaysia, Myint Oo from Myanmar, Christina Gaston from the Philippines and Nguyen Van Trung from Vietnam.

Call 1289 ext 1351 and 1353.
