Born in Yangon, Myanmar in 1977, Wah Nu is a multidisciplinary artist with a career spanning more than two decades. Alongside her partner, Tun Win Aung, the duo incorporates videos, paintings, performance and sculpture into installations that touch on the tumultuous nature of Burmese histories, often addressing socio-political issues such as poverty, censorship, and the fight for democracy. Large-scale works such as ‘Blurring the Boundaries’ (2007-2009) and ‘1000 Pieces (of White)’ (2009–) have found particular success in the biennial circuit as well as institutions such as The Guggenheim Museum, shedding light onto their once isolated home nation.
