Fabric is not merely material but also a site of social struggle. Clothing has become the focal point of a tug-of-war between patriarchal and feminist ideas about how women exist in society. For generations, fabric has been employed to encapsulate traditional notions of femininity; however, a movement of resistance to both military and patriarchal power is emerging to challenge this. In this painting, Chuu addresses the history of Myanmar and the situation of women using newspaper collages and photographs to establish a link between the past and the present throughout the journey.
