策展實績 > 還原記憶 吳旻華創作個展 Restore Memory WU Min Hua Solo Exhibition
Before Sinicizing, the aboriginals in Taiwan’s high mountains used to migrate and obtain resources on foot. During rituals, women in tribes used to grind foxtail millet and remove its shell with bare feet, displaying the historical scenery with beauty of tempo and vision.
As younger generations emigrate to work, footprints become the symbol of one’s departure from native culture, while they still prove traces of growth. As an offspring of Payuan tribe, the artist WU Min Hua deals with her origin, culture and memories through casting her family members’ feet. Aside from recording her emotion when pursuing native culture, she also explores her awaken sense of mission and the function and meanings of footprints beyond civilization.
