Myanmar artist Moe Satt’s latest solo exhibition is entitled, If I say it’s True Seven Times.
In a statement, he references a line in the song Yaung Zin Khun Na Thwe (a spectrum of seven colours), “If I say it’s [the] truth seven times….”
Inspired by the line, Moe Satt created seven artworks to “illustrate [his] boyhood during the later stages of Ma Sa La (Burmese Way to Socialism) and the entire [governing] period of Na Wa Ta (State Law and Order Restoration Council).”
The artist poses questions, are we truthful?
Have we ever been truthful at all?
The artworks are said to reflect the foundations of Moe Satt’s experience living through the 1980s and 1990s.
They are said to be his efforts to unlock or reveal the truth.
The opening reception is on July 20 at 6pm.
