Moe Satt (Yangon)

Other Side of the Revolution


Synopsis: As an emerging millennial Satt is persistently concerned with socio-political conditions of the people of his country, Myanmar. Using the body as his foremost medium, hand gestures and symbols are essential to his practice. He uses patterns derived from religion, social history, and popular culture as a citation tool to express attitudes, raise questions, and provoke awareness. In this playful and provocative performance the audience was invited to stamp Satt’s body with an ink pad, and encouraged to shoot each other with rubber bands.

Moe Satt’s FIELD MEETING participation is supported by Alserkal Avenue (Dubai).
