Artwork Appreciation
Dondon Houmwm is a member of the Tomong tribe of the Taroko people and creates artworks that cross the genre of new media and performance art to reflect upon the personal identity and historical context of the Taiwanese aborigines. Prayer is a two-screen image that shows Dondon Houmwm carrying out a prayer ritual while wearing traditional and modern clothing against a background of modern and traditional buildings. The black and white backgrounds and occasional patches of brilliant colors intentionally retained serve to symbolize conflicts between two different cultures. Dondon Houmwm attempts to convey an aborigine’s perspective on culture and value as well as the position of their people in the modern society.
