PERSPECTIVES ON HISTORY
Installation/ Video art
(300 Myanmar Histrory books covered in white paper putting all over the room full of
burned rice husks )
In History, scattering Myanmar history books under white paper in black burning
rice husks shows the tracks of the Burmese independent revolutionary period (installed in a real historical building in 2015), where all of the ethnic leaders of Burma discussed freedom from our colonial past. But this white washing of our history still is going on through a media charmed by western eyes yet unknown truth and untold circumstances is still to be interpreted through art and from the media even today as our world is turned inside out. What is our historical perspective with so many ethic groups in conflict and with a dim light of charred remains to sift through for the truth?
This is History to me.
