Curated by Nathalie Johnston, Out of Myth, Onto_Logical intentionally exposes an archive of work dating back to 1982, not only to bring focus to a period of Myanmar’s art history rarely explored, but also to investigate Po Po’s unique pieces in context, and explore how they have inspired generations of artists in Myanmar today. A visionary artist who brought something truly new in concept and execution to an isolated country’s latent art scene in the 1980s, he has gone from painting to assemblage, from monotype to installation, and from design to architecture, often challenging audiences to see ideas through five senses, willing a concept out of shape.
Po Po has exhibited in Gwangju, Fukuoka, Berlin and Singapore, and will be participating in both the Dhaka Art Summit 2016 and Asia Pacific Triennial 8.
