MOE SATT
Born July 20, 1983, Yangon, Myanmar

Moe Satt lives and works as a visual and performance artist and curator in Yangon, Myanmar. Moe started creating art after graduating from East Yangon University in Myanmar with a degree in Zoology in 2005 and is part of a new generation of emerging Burmese artists. In 2008, he founded and organized Beyond Pressure, an international festival of performance art in Myanmar. As a performance artist, Moe has performed in galleries and also on the streets of Yangon. He has been actively participating in live arts festivals in Southeast Asia and South Asia, and on the international stage. Through his travel encounters, Moe sees the differences between performance artists from both open and those from more restricted societies. While contemplating the regional landscape of performance art and on the artistic mindset
of individual countries in the region, he has developed a greater understanding of his own identity as an artist and as a person.

Moe Satt was a finalist for the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award 2015 and participated in the 2nd CAFAM Biennale at CAFA Art Museum in Beijing, China, in 2014. The artist also curated the exhibitions “General / Tiger / Gun” at Rebel Art Space in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2014, “Forward/Backward: 8 Myanmar Second-Wave Contemporary Artists”, H Gallery (Thailand, 2011). “On/Off: Myanmar Contemporary Art Event”, The Almaz Collective (Vietnam, 2010). He writes regularly on art in Myanmar and contributes to magazines across the region.
22 - 26 Mar, 2016
Featuring works by 23 artists from Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand and Vietnam,
"Shapeshifting: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia" at 10 Chancery Lane Art Projects
in Hong Kong’s Chai Wan district will present some of the most interesting and
innovative voices from Southeast Asia. Focused on the region’s shifting range of art
practices, the exhibition focuses on four countries from Indochina: Myanmar, Thailand,
Cambodia and Vietnam. There is a certain connection that can be felt among the works
but the origins and dialogues in play all have different sources that are particular to the artists’ personal backgrounds paired with the national, religious, political or social identity of each one.
