Nyein Chan Su
'Changes are only on the surface, in other words – there is no change, no improvement, no feeling of security in our minds, souls and emotions. In reality there still is no equality, justice. We continue to be plagued by "red tape" bureaucracy as we survive on faint hopes for a brighter future.'
Nyein Chan Su has participated in several shows inside Myanmar as well as in Japan (1999), Hong Kong (1999) Singapore (2000, 2001, 2002), Hong Kong (2004) and Thailand (2008, 2009).
