Write for Right 14

Witnessing daily the desperation of the crowd in the street, Chuu Wai Nyein decided one day to bring a blank canvas to a protest down her building. Spontaneously, dozens of people from all backgrounds picked pens to write down their anger at the soldiers facing them but also their fears, their support to the imprisoned Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi or their poetic ambition for their country. The result is a priceless testimony of the democratic aspirations of her society.
From these pieces of evidence from the ground and the posters that she designed for the demonstrators, she is now reflecting upon a new art series.
