MAKUTAAY : Not Only Her Story - Fan Hsiao-Lan Solo Exhibition

This work is based on a local life experience as a start, that is my life experience in working with many people of the tribe (Makutaay) about half a year in Gangkou village of Fengbin Township of Hualien County. Thanks to everything experienced in life, in fact, it is a complex intertexture with local politics, histories, and contemporary activities fields, on which we can see the different experiences and meanings of the world, and diverse relationship among people.



This work is through the tribal life and observation to understand tribal women under the slowly disappearing framework of the traditional matriarchal society, and to accumulate the stories from their statements in everyday listening and chatting. These stories have implied the fact of existence: the political intrusion on the central and local units, economical and political relations between locals and outsiders, and imagination or fighting each other, the rapid changes in the generation for the role of women in social transformation, etc., which have directly and immediately become a way of life and a choice. I join them as the outside bystander to share the embarrassment for their changing role, laughter and melancholy, and even love and dream.



The sound portion of the work was an oral narration by a female voice. The content was previously referred to the daily accumulation of a segment on Makutaay life events, legends, or stories.The images are common completion and implementation of their ideal bridal veil, and the desire for wedding pictures by using the camera and mutual trust.
