FIELD MEETING TAKE 6: THINKING COLLECTIONS

Moe Satt (Yangon)

 

F n’ F (Face and Fingers)

Performance

Synopsis: As an emerging millennial artist Moe 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 Satt’s 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 F n’ F performance Satt “incorporates over 100 facial and hand gestures as well as body postures to codify the oppressive conditions of warfare experiences in Myanmar.”

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