Description +-

"April salute" depicts the "three finger salute" which is widely used as a symbol of solidarity and defiance against authoritarian governments. However, the salute is being held captive by the rope with a snake, which represents more sinister forces.

Despite the complex entanglement, Soe Yu Nwe's use of colour palette portrays hope. Padauk, the national flower of Myanmar, blooms in the month of April, which is also the new year of Myanmar, It symbolises renewal and the transition between the old and the new.

Artist +-

Soe Yu Nwe (b. 1989)

Soe Yu Nwe is an artist from Myanmar. After earning a MFA degree in Ceramics at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2015, Soe has been participating in numerous residencies in the United States and across Asia. Her experience of living cross-culturally has inspired her to reflect upon her own identity through making, conceiving it as a fluid, fragile and fragmented entity. Through transfiguration of her emotional landscape by poetically depicting nature and body in parts, she ponders the complexities of individual identity in this rapidly changing globalised society.

Soe’s work has been exhibited internationally. Her exhibitions includes the 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (Australia), 2018 Dhaka Art Summit (Bangladesh), The New Taipei City Yingge Ceramic Museum (Taiwan), Yavuz Gallery (Singapore), ZieherSmith in Chelsea, New York (USA), and National Gallery of Indonesia, Jakarta (Indonesia). Soe has become an invited member of IAC (International Academy of Ceramics) as the first member from Myanmar. Soe was named in 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30: Art & Style. Recently, Soe has been selected as the finalist for the 2022 ASEAN residency and awarded Reconnect Grant from Goethe Institute. Her upcoming exhibitions include “KONNECT ASEAN Art on Paper” exhibition at ASEAN Culture House in Busan (Korea) and a solo exhibition at Goethe Institute (Myanmar) in 2022.

Soe’s work has been acquired by the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia.
