Have a break, let's go explore Esplanade!
This is one of the places I love to visit for photography when I'm free.



This looked like a picture on the wall right? It was taken while taking the escalator down from the rooftop garden of Esplanade. I like this picture!

One of the reasons I liked to visit Esplanade is simply because there are always new things to see there. It is also because this place is air-conditioned and indoor. Thus there is no worry of rain or the sun. I can relax myself and tour around Esplanade. If hungry, there are also restaurant and cafe to go. The library is also very comfortable place to hang out.



During my visit there last weekend , I saw this display "Aung Ko's Village" done by Aung Ko. Myanmar artist Aung Ko is a versatile young practitioner active on the performance scene in his country. He lives and works in Yangon, but also returns regularly to his village Thu Ye Dan, located 9 hours drive North-West of the capital, not far from India Border.



Since 2007 Aung Ko has developing visual art projects in his village, the rural community intrinsic to both his pieces' concept and execution.

Aung Ko mentioned that these day everything is QUICK QUICK and I strongly agreed to this. That why we all need to "Have a break" sometime. In this art piece, Aung Ko hoped to remind people of Nature and village techniques of cooperation and community. Before we became developed, we came from the village.



The city people tend to forget this but the village comes first. Aung Ko aimed to question the idea of high-tech and the ease with which everything in particular building, is achieved these days.

Nice picture displaying in Esplanade.



This was another interesting display which I came across in Esplanade too on that day. It was named as the "Lalang Fields (The One With The Red Mane)" by a Singapore artist, Junaidi Wa'ee.

This whimsical yet satirical work is an extension of Junaidi Wa'eem previous series "Will the Real Lion Please Stand Up". In essence, it is inspired by the idea of the lalang fields which can be looked upon as a unit, one which is multi-dimensional, composite and continually defining individually, its orientation subject to restriction.



"What is our true identity?" Is it our manes, the clothes we wear or is the direction that we ultimately graze upon that truly defines us? Are we really a deer who trying to be a Lion? But I also thought that it is maybe the environment that lead us to certain ways we do things. Hmm there is so much of thoughts looking at the displays... It's so fun and relaxing!
