The oldest still inhabited houses in Myanmar date back to the beginning of the twentieth century and to a social context marked by colonialism.

About

Besides a few sparse reminders of the contemporary world, the private interiors of these houses contain numerous traces of former times. In many cases these are objects that have been left untouched for decades, which bear witness to the cosmos of a lost world.

However, between the then and the now lie chasms. These spaces are imbued with an uncanny sense of emptiness. Dark whispers echo through them - a memento mori - a reminder of Burmese history hidden from view. The rooms bear witness to an earlier wealth, to adaptation and repression, and become ‘sets’ for films in which the lives of the inhabitants and their ancestors are played back in our minds.
