An introductory panel discussion will take place on Saturday, August 6 at 13.00-16.00 at The Art Center followed by an opening party at H Gallery from 17.00. There will also be a reception at 100 Tonson Gallery on Thursday, August 25, from 19.00.

Three of Bangkok’s most established contemporary art venues are very pleased to announce an ambitious collaborative showcase of Pinaree Sanpitak’s recent works. Two interactive installations and a series of paintings reveal new interests and developments in Pinaree’s on-going exploration of the symbolic and experiential dimensions of corporeality.

H Gallery will exhibit a large number of sculptural forms inspired by origami and woven from rattan. Viewers are invited to engage with these near-surreal motifs of cubes with wings. At The Art Center an installation of hanging forms will also engage the visitor’s body but with sensors that trigger especially composed soundtracks. While both these exhibitions encourage a reflection on our physical being in terms of movement, space and touch, Pinaree’s new paintings at 100 Tonson Gallery explore the plastic and metaphorical potential of her motifs as objects for the contemplation of existence.

Pinaree states, "The body, which has been a continuing focus in my work for the past 20 years - explores sensory experience and perception. Recently, my son’s interest in pursuing studies in fashion design has led me to look at the body through the ideas of adornment: How the body is epitomized or minimized. What matters to me is how the body becomes a site of transit, contemplation and understanding. The body - part or whole - ponders, wonders and challenges."

Note: The artist will collaborate with Sarah Bond from Traill International School, Valerie McCubbin from NIST (The New International School of Thailand) and Nambun Namphenbun, storywriter and children’s television program director and host on a series of special educational programs with students and the visually impaired during the course of the exhibitions

Pinaree Sanpitak was born in 1961 and is one of Thailand’s most visible artists internationally. She recently took part in Stealing the Senses at Govett-Brewster in New Zealand and in Here/Not Here at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum.
