Collaboration with Latitudes Magazine, 'The Remembrance', showcases unique talent of Narath Boriboonhiranthana
Phuket, THAILAND 11 July, 2019 - Kata Rocks will host another exciting contemporary art exhibition this August, in collaboration with Latitudes Magazine, when prominent Thai artist Narath Boriboonhiranthana showcases her unique style from 20 July to 20 August 2019.
Titled 'The Remembrance', her work explores the intersection of Art Nouveau and tradition Thai art. Narath creates delicate paper cut art pieces inspired by her personal history and vivid imagination.
She started her journey at Bangkok’s Silpakorn University where she majored in Thai art. Between her second and third year at Silpakorn Narath developed Attention Deficit Disorder and had problems concentrating on her assignments, then one of her professors suggested paper cuts. Narath found she thrived on it so much that her attention span improved.
She first developed the technique in a traditional manner before moving on to her own style that mirrors the way she draws. Narath’s creations provided a cathartic outlet to express her feelings of rejection, disappointment and frustration. Her artwork constantly changes in a maze of references, objects and symbols that are initially unseen to the viewer who then discovers hidden references progressively.
“Contemporary art is very much in Kata Rocks' brand DNA and we want to provide a unique platform for emerging artists to showcase their talents. Our guests are invited to add to their experience through this exhibition until 20 August, as it reflects our continued commitment to Phuket's emerging art scene,” said Russel Chew, Infinite Luxury Events Director.
Kata Rocks previously exhibited the work of versatile Bangkok-based artist and sculptor Arnaud Nazare-Aga. Arnaud’s colourful sculptures are installed in hotels and architectural spaces in Asia and around the world.
Christophe Chommeloux, Latitudes Magazine, Chief Editor, said, "We are delighted to collaborate with Kata Rocks for this important exhibition. The Remembrance is part of our ongoing Latitudes Turnkey Art Exhibition series that focuses on up-and-coming artists from around Thailand.”
Guests are welcome to come and explore 'The Remembrance' and experience Narath’s art first hand. The exhibition will be launched with a private, invitation-only cocktail reception on Friday, 19 July at 6:30 pm. To request an invitation kindly email [email protected].
