Born in 1987 in Myanmar.
Yadanar Win is a multimedia artist living in Marseilles, France. With an early interest in international exchange, driven by her university studies in English, she joined New Zero Art Space as a collaborative member in 2009. After that she independently worked for 9 years as an art organiser and cultural practitioner based in Yangon. It was during these years when Yadanar began to experiment with performance, video, and installation. Her unique ability to seamlessly join her own body, to the document of her performance, and bring them together into an art object is reflective of her generation’s willingness to experiment with all mediums, and abandon the traditional painting and sculpture so common in the Myanmar art scene. Her performances are passionate and critical, often citing the plight of Myanmar’s peace process or personal struggles as a young, female artist. While participating in group exhibitions, she also worked as an arts and cultural coordinator at the Goethe Institut - Myanmar for two years. She left her country after the 2021 Military coup. She is currently a member of the agency of artists in exile in Marseilles.
