As Myanmar emerges from five decades of military rule, artist Po Po has recently opened a gallery, studio and community centre adjacent to his home in Yangon. At the same time, he has begun to realise works in a material form that have long functioned in his art and life as an “archive of ideas”. Despite enjoying the privilege of international travel since his participation in the first Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale in Japan in 1999, Po Po has rarely exhibited in Myanmar.
