Htein Lin: Singapore Biennale, The Value of Art And The Past

15 Jan 2017

“For my daily life, as a meditator, we are taught not to focus on either the past or the future, but only on the present. When I return to past experiences and events through my art, including in my Recovering the Past exhibition, my aim is more to recognise their value. Sometimes we don’t know the value of what we have until it is gone, like the mangroves, or parents, or handmade in a world of mass production.”

Popspoken interviews Htein Lin, for his solo exhibition Htein Lin: Recovering the Past.
