Soe Yu Nwe

Berasal dari Myanmar, Soe Yu Nwe tinggal dan bekerja di Albion, Michigan, AS, sebagai perupa. Ia lulus pendidikan sarjana seni rupa dari Albion College, dan baru-baru ini lulus dari tingkat pascasarjana dalam keramik dari Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Karya-karya Soe Yu utamanya berangkat dari pengalaman hidup lintas budaya yang dipunyainya, sebagai peranakan Tionghoa di Myanmar, yang pergi belajar dan menetap di Amerika. Persoalan identitas, maka menjadi direpresentasikan secara kuat olehnya, dan tampil sebagai entitas yang cair, rapuh, dan terfragmen. Olahan-olahan bentuk Soe Yu tampil sebagai gambaran pemandangan emosional, mempergunakan bagian-bagian elemen alam dan bagian tubuh sebagai perpanjangan cabang ekspresi ketajaman dan keperihan dalam fenomena tumbuh kembang yang termanusiakan.

Soe Yu Nwe terpilih melalui proses open call. Ia menjalankan program residensi JCCB4 di Arskala Studio, Yogyakarta, pada November 2016.

Born in Myanmar, Soe Yu Nwe currently lives and works as an artist in Albion, Michigan. She holds a BFA in Art from Albion College, and recently graduated MFA in Ceramics in Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Soe Yu’s works departs from her cross-cultural living experience; as a Chinese descent in Myanmar who went to study and stays in the US. As such, spectrums of identity becomes an issue resoundly represented in her works, seemingly portrayed as an entity of fluid, fragile, and fragmented qualities. The resulting works of Soe Yu comes to shape as a composition of emotional landscape, utilising depictions of nature elements and body parts as points of poignance through a phenomenon of growth in being human.
