‘izainu’ by Hesther Ng. The A3 print was part of Standpoint’s fundraising print sale, sold exclusively at not just a shop.
“izainu”, is a word from the Paywan indigenous language meaning “where”. This image is from Hesther’s final year project, “tima itjen” (meaning “who are we” in the Paywan language). The project explores the struggles of the young Paywan indigenous in Taiwan, and how they are adapting their cultural traditions in the modern world.
