The Prince of Gowns Exhibition
Exploring the two-dimensionality of paintings, we collaborated with graphic artist
Sek Eng to design the exhibition as a series of life size papertole drawings. Eng created
a series of pen and ink drawings of objects from various romantic paintings.
Prince of Gowns was an exhibition showing 10 gowns inspired by romantic Neo-Classical oil paintings.
We wanted to reflect this influence of art in Ong’s work and re-imagined the space as an art gallery. Exploring the two-dimensionality of paintings, we collaborated with graphic artist
Ong’s gowns were centrepieces to these “paintings”. The gowns were composed behind oversized picture frames and suspended from the ceiling. On a glamorous opening night full of beautiful and well dressed people, we were especially pleased when Ong told us that he was delighted with the way the exhibition had turned out.
