Burmese visual and performance artist Moe Satt uses his own body as a symbolic field for exploring self, identity, embodiment, and political resistance. He is part of a renowned generation of experimental contemporary Burmese artists who overcame government censorship and oppression to engage with conceptual artwork, the body, and identity. Satt initiated the “Beyond Pressure Public Art Festival” (2008-2014) in Myanmar and was nominated for the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award in 2015. He has also been curating artworks by Burmese artists for more than a decade and is responsible for raising awareness in Asia and elsewhere to his native country art.
