Drum For Freedom
Thinn Thinn
This is not just an art exhibition but also a protest against the military coup in Myanmar by the Tatmadaw – Myanmar’s Military. The coup in Myanmar began on the morning of 1st February 2021, when democratically elected members of the country were deposed by the Tatmadaw. Since then, there has been nothing but violence and abuse of human dignity while the world watched and occasionally wrote carefully worded letters. Meanwhile, the people of Myanmar have protested the Military tirelessly and creatively despite the Military’s strong-arm suppression techniques. Among the most popular forms of protest is the banging of pots and pans, which is a traditional practice of warding off evil.
This exhibition is a protest. The work created is an artistic equivalence of the banging of pots; “Drum for Freedom”. The artists stand in solidarity with the Myanmar people, and all profits will be given to Myanmar’s Civil Disobedience Movement. In addition to the leading artist, the show will also feature some works by Nyein Chan Aung, the artist of the 2019 launch Melbourne Art Tram, “The Late Supper.”
