I, as many other people in Myanmar, know first-hand about the recent atrocities committed against Myanmar people. These atrocities destroyed the hopes and dreams for so many people.
This artwork is a multi-media performance documenting the making and destroying of one of my paintings. The painting represents all the artwork that I have made since February 2021. This year, I used my art to documentation my past hopelessness and sadness. At the end of the performance, I burn my painting. The burning art becomes a flame of hope, symbolising a new beginning.
With this, I want to convey to the audience about the possibility for new beginnings: Dark days shall perish, and brighter tomorrow will fall upon the people of Myanmar.
This is my kind of hope. The full process will be documented with video format.
People are staying together and making community who have same basic value of humanity and moral to form a stable and secure society. Each and every one is contributing for this community with their skills and capacities for the sustainability of it. People respects to each other, understand the diversity without judgement or discrimination and always think of inclusiveness. Such community can only be the good united community or the united community with diversity. I believe the art is the best platform or medium that can bridge among people for sharing and expressing of thoughts, feelings and opinions without words or languages. The opinions and voices of every participants is important and only the collective voices can represent and reflect the community. I want to search the collective answer of “What is union?” for our community through this experimental process. This exhibition is not only to watch my art creations but also a process or collective works that audience can participate. You can reflect how you grow up, what happening to you now and what you hope for your future. Then express it by participating in this exhibition. Please check the steps by steps instruction and feel free to participate!
