A Disappearing Culture: The Amis Earthenware Tradition in Taiwan

17 January – 31 May 2015


The Amis are the largest indigenous tribe in Taiwan with a population close to 182,000, mainly live along the east coast of the island. The Amis are the only remaining matriarchal aboriginal tribe in Taiwan who create earthenware using traditional methods.
The exhibition looks into the Amis lifestyle, women’s role in earthenware production, the ceremonial aspect of this ceramic tradition and the production process.
There will be photos and examples of Amis earthenware along the staircase, and a 10-minute documentary film on the second floor.

This exhibition is developed in partnership with Bath Spa University. The exhibition is based on a research project currently carried out by Wen-Hsi Harman, a PhD candidate who is documenting the Amis earthenware culture before it vanishes. Photos  by Wen-Hsi Harman.
