Yadanar Win is a multimedia artist based in Yangon, Myanmar. With an early interest in international exchange, driven by her university studies in English, she joined New Zero Art Space as a collaborative member in 2009. After that, she was not only involved in the culture scene for nine years as an artist, but also organized and coordinated several cultural projects and exchanges.
Her unique ability to seamlessly join her own body to the document of her performance and bring them together into an art object is reflective of her generation’s willingness to experiment with all media and abandon the traditional painting and sculpture so common in the Myanmar art scene.
Her performances are passionate and critical, often citing the plight of Myanmar’s peace process or personal struggles as a young female artist in Myanmar. While participating in several exhibitions local and internationally, she also worked as a cultural coordinator at the Goethe-Institut for two years. She is now an independent artist and organizer of several cultural projects in Yangon.
