To My Unborn Child is a new installation including various modes of image making by Taiwanese artist Wen-Li Chen, an artist contending with her inheritance of Kavalan and Sakilaya Indigenous cultures from her paternal side and her maternal Han Chinese culture. Chen’s work considers personal identity and the future of Indigenous Taiwanese peoples in a social and geographic environment in constant flux.
