CREATIONS CONTEMPORAINES DES ADIVASI,

 MUSEE DU QUAI BRANLY PARIS

31

Scarsamente recensito negli anni della sua scomparsa, il mondo artistico  degli Adivasi è oggi rappresentato nella mostra temporanea  al Museo du Qui Branly di Parigi in undici sezioni, nelle quali il Curatore ha cercato di rappresentare altrettanti microcosmi di questa realtà ormai perduta.

Il confronto iconografico  tra il passato ed il presente è tuttavia in alcuni casi impietoso.

Il visitatore è per esempio accolto nella sua visita da alcuni cavalli in terracotta, opere di artigianato odierno che poco o niente hanno a che fare con l'antica tradizione iconografica degli 'holy potters' del Tamil Nadu.

Manufatti moderni che testimoniano un regresso estetico che dalla sublime arte dei Grama Devatas o Village Gods of South India retrocede a mere rappresentazioni artigianali che niente hanno a che fare con le prime.

Stella Kramrisch non le avrebbe di certo inserite nella sua epica esibisione del 1968, Unknown India Ritual Art in Tribe and Village di Philadelphia.

Un Santal Banam, proveniente da una anonima collezione indiana, e pubblicato nel PDF di presentazione della mostra, oltre ad essere evidentemente nuovo, presenta uno scollamento sostanziale con la tipica iconografia ed estetica di questa popolazione.

Una Mostra di manufatti non soltanto nuovi, dunque, ma in molti casi anche lontani dalle originali tradizioni dei popoli presi in considerazione.

AUTRES MAITRES DE L'INDE CREATIONS CONTEMPORAINES DES ADIVASI, MUSEE DU QUAI BRANLY PARIS,  du mardi 30 Mars au Dimanche 18 Juillet 2010, Commissaire General of the Exhibition Mr JYOTINDRA JAIN.

Section 1 : LES REPRESENTATIONS DE L'INDE ADIVASI

Cette section  illustre la situation tribale en Inde à l’époque coloniale, postcoloniale et contemporaine en présentant des textes, cartes et photographies. 

Chromos, gravures et cartes postales représentent les tribus autochtones et peuples « Adivasi » dans une perspective historique.  Les oeuvres des photographes Dayanita Singh et Pablo Bartholomew portent un regard contemporain sur les « Adivasi ».

Section 2: LES PEUPLES

L’exposition présente  onze univers correspondant chacun à un peuple différent ; chacun de ces peuples est  caractérisé par ses productions matérielles rituelles et artistiques.

- Les sculptures Bhuta, Karnataka
-Bas-reliefs architecturaux : les femmes artistes de Chattisgarh
-Andaman et Nicobar, sud-est de l'Inde
-Pièces artisanales Ayyanar : sculptures en terre cuite, Tamil Nadu
-Tombeau de Molela : dieux d’argile, Rajasthan
-Pithora : peintures murales, centre-Ouest du Gujarat
-Figurines tribales en bronze de l’ère Bastar et zones Kondh, Orissa
-Santhal : sculptures sur bois et peintures, West Bengal
-Waghri, Gurajat
-Naga, nord-est de l’Inde
-Peintures Adivasi

Section 3 - Les Artistes Contemporains

Cette troisième  section propose une sélection monographique dans l’oeuvre de deux artistes contemporains : Jivya Soma Mashe (tribu Warli / Thane district) et Jangarh Singh Shyam (peuple Gond / Madya Pradesh).

"...La natura non contenuta dall'equilibrio del clima prolifica con ebbra esuberanza: l'uomo stesso è natura, una immobilità stupefatta lo cristalizza in una inerzia senza passato; ti muovi in un terreno vergine..." (GIUSEPPE TUCCI about the Humla region).

1A

"Giuseppe Tucci ricorda come nella regione di Humla si trovassero dei templi dal carattere e stile primitivo,  aperti sul davanti,  il tetto  in paglia  appoggiato su possenti tronchi d'albero, dall'aspetto non dissimile da   quello delle capanne o dei sacrari dell'Assam e della Polinesia , nell'interno  figure di legno scolpite in uno stile frontale rappresentavano nell'immobile ed atemporale  fissità dei volti  le immagini dei donatori, famiglie intere in attonita attesa  poste  intorno ad una  informe pietra, in cui sembrava celarsi  la misteriosa  presenza divina ..." (free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)

1C

"Giuseppe Tucci annota come il  Il pandit che gli faceva da guida  si rifiutasse di definire  Induismo la religione delle genti di questa regione,  che con disprezzo   definiva    superstiziosa adorazione di spiriti e demoni, nel termine locale bhut, entità insidiose e vendicative. La paura delle entità ostili ed  invisibili sembrava  incombere e pervadere tutto  intorno,  minacciando i viandanti  da ogni altura  di colle oppure  dai temuti  rami degli alberi maledetti, sui rami dei quali, brandelli di stoffa colorata, appesi dal viandante timoroso, ad ogni alito  di vento prolungavano invisibili  esorcismi..."(free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)

1D

"Circa la credenza di alberi creduti maledetti Giuseppe Tucci sottolineva come Devozione non fosse probabilmente la parola più appropiata, per definire il sentimento che ispiravano nei viandanti,  perché era certamente più  la paura il sentimento che li portava  a dedicare una preghiera o ad annodare un brandello di stoffa sui rami di questi alberi trasformati così in muti e temuti simulacri." Free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)

16

Una donna che  non voleva farsi ardere nel rogo del marito morto, secondo una antica tradizione indiana, fu uccisa dai suoi parenti, da quel giorno si trasformò in un vendicativo BHUT che insidiava tutti coloro che non le dimostravano devozione ... i bhut più temuti e rispettati sono comunque quelli che aleggiano nei pressi dei ponti o degli scoscesi  sentieri sospesi nel vuoto, lì il viandante deve prestare molta attenzione e devozione. Giuseppe Tucci riporta la storia di un ponte particolarmente temuto, quello di Cotbara, lì si credeva  dimorasse  lo spirito di un  brahamano che si era suicidato proprio in quel luogo. Nessuno osava attraversare quel ponte una volta calato il sole."..."(free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)

"...La gente dell'Himalaya sa che le foreste sono abitate da uomini selvaggi.

Ci sono le tribù dei Kusuda e dei Chepang, scoperte dagli antropologi pochi anni fa, ma anche i Ritte Jhakri, neri e pelosi, che vivono con i Suna Jhakri, acquanauti dal pelo fulvo e dorato.

Consiglio di evitare i Latho Jhakri, muti e pazzi, mentre è un dono divino l'incontro con i Bon Jhakri, nani e vegetariani, verdi e caritatevoli, che insegnano le arti sciamaniche.

Di notte, vicino al fuoco e ai monti più alti della terra, ho incontrato più volte chi mi giurava d'esser stato educato da queste creature dei boschi e come prova mi mostrava i regali ricevuti: pietre sonanti, cristalli e strane reliquie antropomorfe fatte di pelo e radici intrecciate. 

Per sopravvivere allo sterminio e a una caccia a streghe e demoni che mi ricorda quella della nostra inquisizione, molti sciamani si sono dovuti mascherare con liturgie indù e buddiste.

Lo sciamano è un uomo coraggioso, un viaggiatore e un mistico che sfida l'ignoto e il mistero dell'esistenza. E' un uomo straordinario che riesce a curarsi da dolorose malattie iniziatiche e da laceranti crisi esistenziali che lo strascinano al limite della follia. E' un artista che inventa psicodrammi e danze estatiche per rinsaldare il gruppo e perpetuare così i miti del Clan. E' uno psicologo contadino che ristabilisce l'equilibrio armonioso tra il "dentro" e il "fuori", tra il corpo e l'anima, tra l'uomo e dio. E' un medico e un erborista che conosce le piante maestre e pscichedeliche, un econauta in viaggio nella natura selvaggia in compagnia degli animali eletti a spiriti guida.

Col "volo magico", il viaggio interiore,scopre il ritmo vibratorio e le forme dell'Universo. Sale in Paradiso e scende con coraggio nel regno della Morte, la Terra del Grande Ritorno.

Noi, viaggiatori verso Oriente, li abbiamo scelti come maestri del viaggio...".

LES NOCTURNES visites jasqu'a 20,30 le 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 DECEMBRE, 2, 3, Janvier 2010.
Un événement Ville de Cannes.
Rens: 04 93 38 55 26 - www.cannes.com
Bus: 1,2,7, et 20, Arret "Souquet".

Among the shamanic items on display imposing  the shaman ritual 'armor' or 'vetement' from the Dhaulagiri area, from the same area a 'baguette de tambour' with an interesting antrophomorphic top namaste posture figure and the symbols of the three worlds exactly, from an iconographic view point, carved below; a particulary decorated  holy vase bumba and 'his' wooden carved altar or 'autel' (in the back side of wich, not visible to the public, there is carved a primitive figure in namaste posture;  the best items of the exhibition are however in my opinion  a massive phurbu with a shaman 'errant' (?)on the top, and a Dhyangro handle with the same exact iconography (a part the top phurbu figure, bien sure), from the same artistic hand and ... shaman's kit very probably. In the upper section of the handle is exceptionally carved an human figure, a shaman, in namaste posture.

The great part of these new acquisition of the Museum were on display in the Mr Francois Pannier exhibition of the 2007 in Paris and publicated in the catalogue edit by the Galerie Le Toit du Monde at that time.

 In a Multimedia section of the new room of the Musee de la Castre are available some shamanic B/W pics from the photo collection of Mr Renzo Freschi (Milan, Italy).


Only one primitive figure, the female, of the couple traditionally attribuited to the carvers of the  Lake Rara area ,  remains now on display in direct contrapposition with a Vishnu wooden panel carved in  high relief and linked with the Newari art production of the Katmandu Valley.

The masks on display are now 14, in great part linked with the Monpa culture of the Arunachal Pradesh (follow a short list below).

In a 'vetrine' devoted to the Tibetan culture some classic painted Tsakali, linked with ritual porpouses as well as consacrations, initiations, funerals; a "Chapeaux Noirs" ritual and symbolic ornament linked with the headdresses used in this dance that is part of the most vast Cham representation, a 'tablier' representing Mahakala, a Perak from Ladakh, a wooden block with protective motifs (among the others).
