Belmond Governor’s Residence, a landmark colonial-style hotel in Yangon, Myanmar unveils an innovative art exhibition, marking the start of a sensitive restoration project.

Introducing a Sense of Place

Entitled ‘Sense of Place’, the collaboration with three of Myanmar’s contemporary artists is designed to inject a sense of authentic culture. Large-scale paintings subtly screen highly-skilled, small-scale renovations of areas including the teak detailing, roof tiling and Mindon Lounge.

With bamboo blinds as their canvas, local artists Than Htay, Thit Nay Sann and Nilar Tu, represented by Nawaday Tharlar Art Gallery, have each portrayed their colourful style of art which depicts captivating countryside landscapes, traditional figures and scenes of Myanmar culture. As the renovations move around the property over the next five months, so too will the exhibition evolve, displaying five distinct installations by each artist.

Eddie Teh, General Manager for Belmond in Myanmar, comments, “We are working to restore certain elements of our 1920s teak mansion, such as the traditional Burmese trims, tiles and woodwork, while keeping disturbance minimal. Our aim is to ensure the existing architecture of the almost 100-year old building is respected and to preserve the authentic look and feel – the sense of place – that our guests enjoy so much about Belmond Governor’s Residence.”

“We are excited to unveil the paintings as part of the restoration project, to enchant our guests with a beautiful outdoor art gallery that celebrates and showcases the arts of Myanmar.”

Cultural discovery

When the restoration is completed in September 2017, Belmond Governor’s Residence plans to celebrate by extending the ‘Sense of Place’ initiative to include Myanmar music and culinary events, offering guests the opportunity to form a deeper connection with the genuine culture of Yangon and beyond.
