Clémence B. T. D. Barret Pansodan Scene Gallery


Asia- based French artist Clémence B. T. D. Barret presents Pamaa, a series of 9 videos, which are a collaboration with nine young refugees from Shan State all living in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. Pamaa means ‘Burmese’ in Thai .The videos express fragments of the migratory life of young people who have escaped political persecution, oppression, and bloody ethnic conflict, hoping to find a better life in Thailand. Pamaa questions the notion of survival, but also of discrimination, exploitation, fear, freedom, otherness, and culture shock.

She will be showing at Pansodan Scene on Friday 23 September a 7:30pm
