ATTA Gallery will be participating in the PhotoBangkok 2015 with two exhibitions, one is “Something about Jewellery and a Woman”, a jewelry exhibition by Apinya Boonprakob, demonstrating how old photographs influences her imagination and creation of contemporary art jewelry.

Apinya is a well-known and well-repspected figure in Thailand contemporary jewelry scene as she has been a professor at Chulalongkorn University's Industrial Design Department since her return to Thailand after receiving her Ph. D from RCA in London, UK.

"I am interested in the perception of human being in jewellery. My recent work is an attempt to visualize a relation between jewellery and a wearer. The bases for my works are old photographs of women in different life phases. The photo images are not only sources of inspirations; they also act as a house of jewellery. The women in the photo become imaginary wearers when jewellery is not worn. By moving a piece of jewellery from each image to a real human body, a transition begins.
The part of an image becomes jewellery.
The hairpin becomes the brooch.
The brooch becomes earring.
The large becomes small.
The past becomes present.
Jewellery and the wearer create the whole story."

Opening Reception is on Thursday, 6 August 2015 from 18.30 - 22.00
