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.
