Wrapped Womxn is an exhibition of artists working in and out of Yangon in a variety of mediums, including design, painting, textiles, photography and ceramic art. The title of the exhibition alludes to the idea of safety, protection and the physicality of being wrapped. It is also a homophone for the word ‘rapt’, meaning fascinated or absorbed. The word womxn is an alternative word for women, as a rejection of the folk etymology of ‘woman’ allegedly being ‘of man’. This exhibition aims to be an intersectional exploration of artistic and creative pursuits, physical, beautiful and challenging nature.
