Traditionally, flower garlands (Ma-lai) are used mainly as an offering of religious veneration, as well as a gift to convey congratulatory sentiments. This time, the experimental Ma-lai making workshop is thus like a celebration of the passing year by creating special garlands made out of a variety of items and materials, including paper made from natural fibers, flowers, photographs, or other sentimental items, creating a personalized work of art that can be a gift, a memento of all the past year’s memories, as well as well-wishes for the year to come.


The Foundation will provide the basic materials for garland making. Participants are welcome to bring personal items to be used in their garlands, be it photographs, dolls/plushies, or any other item of sentimental value to be included in your garland.

Throughout the 6-month duration of the House Calls exhibition, the Foundation will also host a plethora of activities, including online lectures done in collaboration with the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, U.S.A., experimental Ma-lai making workshops with the artist, a story-telling hour for children, live performances from guest artists, and the artist’s monograph launch. The publication will also feature essays from art historians, and curators, who will offer their perspectives towards Pinaree’s three-decades worth of works.
