S.E.A. FOCUS

Myanm/Art partners with artist Zoncy and the first edition of S.E.A Focus Art Fair in Singapore to present her newest photo series.

Zon Sapal Phyu (Zoncy) (b. 1987, Tanintharyi) produced a series of photographs based on her grandparents home village in the Ayeyarwaddy Delta. Titled Unreachable Memory, she explores elements of her family’s past through snapshots of her grandparents´village in the Ayeyarwaddy region. The faces and place glow with an unnatural light, due to the positive turned negative effects of the film. But the details of village life are clearer than ever with the silvery light behind them. Zoncy invites the audience to find space inside these captured moments, get to know the characters, and feel the nature of their presence. The Unreachable Memory series is meant to be displayed as a wingaba, or maze, where the photographs created pathways, mimicking the journey of childhood memories, where one follows the other over time.
