Centred on the photographic work of Danee Hazama, the exhibition “Our ancestors from . . . Taiwan?” takes us to the heart of the aboriginal tribes of this small island, situated off the Chinese coast.
At the beginning polyphonic, the exhibition presents the work of scientific disciplines focused on the origins of Polynesians and considers the role played by Taiwan in the Austronesian world. Thus, linguistics, archaeology, anthropology, botany and genetics bring a new light to the understanding of the history of the people of the Pacific.
Then, in harmony with scientific discourse, Danee Hazama, with an approach combining ethnology and photography, gives us his account and reminds us of the bonds which link these people of Taiwan to those of Polynesia
