2017 group exhibition — Taipei Original Festival, Songshan Cultural and Creative Park. © Jam Wu. Photo courtesy of the artist. This is a journey to home of an artist. On the trip, 20 mothers together with their families depicted their home scenery through papercutting. In the busy markets, vegetables, fruits, and meat are beautifully exhibited. In the clamorous temples, from dawn to dusk, green dragons and white tigers oversee parade formations escorted by excited pilgrims. In paddy fields, flying pigeons and blooming wildflowers cheer for sweating farmers. In fish farms, water wheels paddle for shrimp larvae and plump milkfish. In salt pans, oyster farms and piles of salt crystals reflect scorching sun of Southern Taiwan. Through cutting, carving, and drawing, they piece together forgotten pictures belonging to their hometown. Through breathing, performing, and cooking, they celebrate their identity on the land belonging to Plains Aborigines.
