This solo exhibition marks the first showcase of works by the renowned fashion designer and textile artist Benny Ong at The Private Museum.
Along with other textile works centered on Buddhist themes, the exhibition revisits a series of Ong’s older works from his inaugural textile exhibition titled Re-woven: A Celebration of Lives, which opened at the Singapore Arts Museum a decade ago. Ong’s artistic practice traces back to the roots of his spiritual beliefs. The body of textile works is a reflection of the artist’s interpretation of the Buddha’s teachings based on inner contemplation, peace, dualism, compassion, and meditation. The exhibition reveals a deeper layer of Ong’s artistic practice.
