Just to be museological, they spray-painted the items white for exhibition.
Then something happened and they couldn't do the exhibition. They don't want to say what.
Wah Nu: Every year we go to that village and stay there because we love the nature, the village and its environment, like this. So we made a performance, videos and site-specific installations with the environment in the village in the hill nearby.
What's next? Well, there's the Minol Museum of Storytelling, featuring music, puppetry, etc. And the Ywallut Museum of Pop Art (for some reason #6), held in a seasonally empty empty rice barn. (Look at the spherical mobiles they've made out of traditional papier-maché toys!)
Tun Win Aung: First, we travel around our country, we see some small village and small town. We were interested in small architecture, small rooms, small hut, or maybe a barn, we were just interested in this.
Second, when we travelled around the country we saw some material, artefacts, something for their daily life. And sometime we thought, even though this is not so called artwork, we thought that it looked like artwork, it looked like a piece by an artists.
Third, we want to share our opportunities with our friends. We need to give a favour to my friends, my students, also my wife, my daughter. We need to share a lot. So for these three things, we had an idea to make this small scale museum. For a result, we were thinking about people. In Myanmar, we have not so many museums, some in Yangon, in Mandalay, for archaeologists.
So when we discussed with the villages, they asked what we make. They don’t know about the artwork. They thought like a museum is so far to them. So we need to introduce what is a museum, what is artwork to the people. That is why, it is just for us.
