Flying in the Fragmentary

What The first solo exhibition of Myanmar artist Nge Lay, Flying In The Fragmentary transforms Yavuz Gallery into a life-sized classroom from Thuye'dan village, 10 hours north of Yangon in Myanmar. The immersive work is spurred by Nge Lay’s worries about her four-year-old child’s future, and an investigation into the strictly censored education system in Myanmar, which still suffers from the aftermath of dictator General Ne Win’s military coup in 1962.
