|| Curator''s Statement ||

As Indigeneity is a politically enabling construct in the resistance to ongoing colonialisms and expropriations. Performance and installation art are conceived as vital expressions of the emergent, processual and contextual nature of Indigenous culture. Dispossessions: Performative Encounter(s) of Taiwanese Indigenous Contemporary Art defies primitivist and primordial expectations by emphasising the self-made and re-appropriated identities of contemporary artists. As an Indigenous curation from an Austronesian perspective, the exhibition responds to the radical flourishing of Indigenous performance and installation art, despite – and in response to – social and environmental disruption, instability and change.

Inspired by the concept of ‘Performing Indigeneity’, as defined by scholars Laura R. Graham and H. Glenn Penny, Dispossessions considers the continuing struggles of Indigenous peoples to resist erasure, by engaging with the creative entanglement of the homeland, the tribal and the global. Curated by Biung Ismahasan of the Bunun people of Taiwan, Dispossessions participates in the decolonial practice of Indigenous curatorial studies.

Central to the exhibition is the cereal crop millet and its fermentation into traditional millet wine. Although the attribution of Indigenous alcoholism to genetic causes evades the brutal realities of history, there is general acknowledgement of alcohol abuse as a continuing colonial scourge. But while alcoholism has the power to divide through addiction, violence, illness, death and taboo, millet wine heralds cultural resilience and unity through its ritual usages in Taiwanese Indigenous cultures. Enacted in the wake of colonialism, the sharing of millet wine, and its experimental embodiment in Indigenous performance art, resurrects pre-colonial rituals, allowing for celebration and connection.

Cutting edge and contemporary, essentially Indigenous, multiple in its political modes of expression, from painting to live performance to video to live painting, Dispossessions: Performative Encounter(s) of Taiwanese Indigenous Contemporary Art is the first exhibition of Taiwanese Indigenous art in the UK. It is a gathering of artistic activism, showcasing the latest Austronesian performative knowledge from a Taiwanese Indigenous perspective.
