Wandering Mind – Ping Hatta Solo Exhibition (26/6 - 30/9 2019)
River City Bangkok is proud to present Wandering Mind: Ping Hatta’s solo exhibition exploring daydreaming, enchanted places, and womanhood. Inspired by the motto “Live well, travel far,” the beauty of exotic places Ping envisioned make her paintings into a private visual wishlist of travel destinations.
“My work is about capturing contemporary fashion, celebrates diversity and body positivity while using art as escapism. Mindfulness is important, but so is mind-wandering. Despite the numerous workshops and self-help books designed to keep us in the present moment and be mindful of what’s happening, daydreaming of travel and nature designed us to escape the focus that confines us. When we’re in the mind-wandering mode, what places do we go to in our heads? Perhaps, where we dream of going on vacation says a lot about who we think we are. In all, I hope the audiences will be able to recognize themselves in my art.”
