The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon Presents ‘Add To Cart’ By Lucy Sparrow
At The Standard, Lucy Sparrow can turn even a street cart into art
As part of its anything but standard cultural programming, The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon presents the Bangkok debut of highly acclaimed British artist Lucy Sparrow. Join the acclaimed artist in seeing the world through her unique and artistic point of view.
This artistic exhibition at The Standard is open to the public from now until 30 June 2023, and the ‘Add to Cart’ exhibition transforms the hotel’s lobby, The Parlor and Tease into a bustling street food market with every snack on display crafted entirely from felt and it is all bright, vibrant and pleasing to the eye.
Moreover, for the brand’s latest collaboration with the artist, The Standard takes a deep dive into traditional Thai flavors that evoke nostalgia by recreating fond childhood memories through street food’s association with good, simple times, so “sa-wa-dee-come on down,” (yes, we know, cringe) and indulge your eyes.
Taking a trip down memory lane, you will find food carts overflowing with every Thai street food staple imaginable – from moo-ping (grilled BBQ pork) and Isaan pork sausages to kanom krok (coconut rice pancake) and cotton candy and tropical fruits cart – all hand-stitched in the inimitable Lucy Sparrow style.
Hard Work Pays Off
On top of that, taking over months to research, create and install, Lucy Sparrow says of her latest project; “The Standard has been such a supportive partner in my career and has shared some incredibly memorable moments with me over the last seven years.”
“They gave me the platform for my first US show, ‘8 till Late’ in New York in 2017 and then allowed me to share the felt with the west coast when I opened Sparrow Mart in downtown Los Angeles in 2018. I’m delighted to be back among friends as they open their incredible Bangkok hotel and can’t wait to see my work installed there.” She added.
