A COLLECTION IN THE MAKING: Thai, Lao & Cambodian textiles


    COLLECTOR’S CORNER

Saturday, 19th November 2016

by Louis Sebastien OHL



   

Louis-Sebastien Ohl, a Bangkok based collector of Asian textiles, will share with us his passion for Thai, Lao and Cambodian weaves. The collection focuses on the various Tai-Lao groups of people living across Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, as well as Khmer and Cham village and temple weavings from Cambodia. In addition, Louis-Sebastien will present a selection of traditional Isaan pieces from Northeast Thailand a region he feels has too long been underrated by local collectors and scholars.

Louis-Sebastien Ohl began collecting about seven years ago, purchasing items world-wide and at which time he succeeded to build an impressive collection that includes a number of rare and extraordinary pieces many a museum would love to add to their own collections. These reflect the unique craftsmanship, imagination and traditions of generations of weavers, dyers and silk manufacturers. He credits Khun Udom Riantrakool of Maya Gallery and Linda McIntosh whose work at and book on the Tilleke Gibbins collections have been a key leaning source.

Our presenter would like this program to be a dialogue with the audience rather than a one-way lecture.
