The project aims to reflect the long-established economic empire of the military. Myanmar Economic Holding Limited, Myanmar Economic Corporation, a swarm of intertwined subsidiaries, joint ventures and smaller companies that have exploited the nation’s wealth since 1962.
From the dawn of the coup, Myanmar’s democratic leaders and government have been targeted by the military under various legal charges, including Section 55 of the Anti-Corruption Law.
At the same time, the military economic interests continue with their illegal extraction of gems, various mining interests, oil and gas extraction, banking, tourism, factories and telecommunications.
Through such ventures, the army, individual generals, people with family ties to the military and cronies with military-blessed titles have been serving themselves with the national budget. The behind-the-scenes military-owned businesses are surfacing now.
People are vetoing military economic interests as a form of social punishment. To help with this process of reckoning on the use of national wealth, this project examines the business of the military and allies, and the embodiment of daily consumption of military-tainted products and services.
The project will also act as a reminder of consciousness for those with special privileges in several dimensions of our society. Who are the corrupt ones? Are you funding the entity that you are struggling against? Ignorance was not a sin, but now it is.
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.
