As part of the National Gallery Singapore’s first anniversary celebration, LASALLE presents both an exhibition and installation featuring students’ work from BA(Hons) Fashion Media and Industries, BA(Hons) Fashion Design and Textiles, and BA(Hons) Interior Design Programmes.
Myths & Beliefs is an exhibition that explores the influence of cultural heritage on creative design. 101 second-year students from BA(Hons) Fashion Media and Industries, BA(Hons) Fashion Design and Textiles, and BA(Hons) Interior Design programmes have researched the oral traditions, art, crafts and creative practices of their native and neighbouring cultures in Asia.
This investigation informed the students’ interpretation of future crafts, in the form of design concepts, objects and propositions. Fashion accessories, garments and architectural models were presented in display modules constructed using an open grid framework. The exhibition was designed and curated by BA(Hons) Interior Design final year students Shirley Tan, Javier Jauhari, Poh Hui Shan and Isjacob Ishak.
The exhibition also featured the work of two fashion lecturers in the form of a tapestry installation and a fashion photography work.
