biography

Born in 1987 in Yangon, Myanmar, Ko Latt is a visual artist, scenographer and performer (dance, body aesthetics, expression with space and material). He is also a visual arts trainer for children and adults. Graduated from Yangon University in Economics, he joined New Zero art space in 2009 and participated in many workshops with local and international artists. In 2012, Ko Latt received a grant to join the Master of Fine Arts in Zurich (Switzerland) and an other in 2016 a scholarship to participate in the IASPIS residency program in Stockholm (Sweden). Through his art, Ko Latt highlights the issues of being a gay artist in Burma and the problems of freedom of expression, social and cultural boundaries that young people face in his country. He founded in 2016 the 3AM collective, the very first performance collective in Myanmar. His encounters, travels and programming in Europe have allowed him to become more professional, and to work independently. He was invited in 2012 by the association Art Tripping of Lyon to perform alone on stage. In 2021, Art Tripping invited him again, this time as a resident artist for six months. His latest performance takes him to Brisbane (Australia) for the 10th Asia-Pacific Contemporary Art Triennial. He is a member of the agency of artists in exile, since January 2022.
