簡介 個人簡介

依法兒瑪琳奇那,布農族藝術家,現旅居澳洲。

出生在下霜的二月,失去蹤影巫師的第七個小孩,是個遺腹子。與父親差身而過短暫的部落兩年歲月,身骨裡也隱眠著山中的靈氣。
 
從深林的歲月到錯綜複雜的人性世界,經歷過新爸爸的中風、憂鬱症的母親、放學後到凌晨的拾荒日子、七歲開始忙不完的家事、一路拖著大水桶遠井邊的洗衣、酸掉的便當、互相謾罵的姐姐,追殺家人的酒鬼哥哥們、繳不出的學費、其他小孩的譏笑辱罵,讓幼小的心不得不出走自己在流浪的母地,遠渡他洋,說著不再熟悉的語言。
 
這樣的故事,在殖民的功利與資本主義雙脅下,像竄繞的病毒,蔓延很多原住民族的家庭中,而飽受流離失所生分了生命文化的信仰核心。我們也知道,愛,可以讓心強大,可惜,這不是失根的原住民族可以知道安身的命運。為能安身只能看不見眼中的無奈、悲傷、生氣、不解以及疑惑,邊緣夾縫中生存。
 
唯有歲月的洗禮與時機的到來,才可以認知這些神聖的經歷,都是為了能讓心中的眼睛看見,在世界的視野中用身體寫下文化衝擊及霸權下的世代創傷,並奠定覺知「人道」的價值與語言力量的推手。


About Eval Malinjinnan

Eval Malinjinnan is a Taiwanese indigenous artist living in Australia.

During a snowy February, Eval Malinjinnan was born to the seventh child of a missing Bunun Shaman; she is a posthumous child. Even though Eval’s father passing her by, the two years in the community has embedded the divine essence in her.     
 
From the remote village to the convoluted outside world of reality, she went through her step-father’s sudden stroke, depressed mother, endless house chores, abusive language among sisters and alcoholic brothers’ domestic violence, and on-going discriminatory environment, all together pushing her out of her motherland where she went into exile and learnt to speak different languages.
 
Under the intrusion of colonialism along with utilitarianism and capitalism, this kind of scenario is a contagious plague pervading in the most Indigenous families. That they have been remorseful for the disconnection of their motherland and their core beliefs. Love can strengthen hearts, however for the uprooted and colonized peoples, to get fed is the priority. We need to prevail against helpless, rage, sorrow, uneasiness and doubt to survive in the edge of oblivion.   
 
Luckily time can appease a traumatic past. Leading to the realization of seeing all predicaments as a sacred path by the mental eye, to articulate the mutual intergenerational trauma across the globe caused by cultural hegemony in the language within physical experiences. In addition to be aware of the value of humanity and the power of language. Accordingly, returning to the once discarded matrix is the only way to comprehend the meaning of life.
