Anli Genu (1958-), whose Chinese name is Anli Lai, was born in the Meihua Village of Atayal tribe in Jiansih Township, Hsinchu County. He graduated from the Department of Fine Arts, Chinese Culture University in 1986 and obtained his master of fine arts (M.F.A.) from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 1992. He is one of the few indigenous artists in Taiwan who have received complete academic training of art.
In addition to being an artist, Anli Genu is also a full-time indigenous pastor. For him, artistic creation is more than about issues of his personal life but also about issues concerning the stability and sustainable development of the whole tribal society. Through art, he attempts to find a system of artistic rhetoric composed of forms, patterns and images that conform to both Christian beliefs and traditional tribal cultures to represent both the tribal tradition and modern social order. He creates his art with religious beliefs and preaches his religion through artistic creation.

This exhibition is a collection of the most important works by Anli Genu over the past nearly three decades and his latest works created especially for this exhibition. It consists of two major sections: “Heart Tree” and “Spiritual Rebirth”, demonstrating different facets of the thinking, exploration, artistic creation and art construction of this indigenous artist and pastor. This exhibition also provides a very good opportunity for us to reflect upon and ponder the development and future direction of contemporary art, including indigenous art, in Taiwan.
