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).

-Mauja is a Gurung village  of  Kaski District in the Gandaki Zone of northern-central Nepal, the photo was took by the photographer Tod Ragsdale in the early 70's.

dyn003_original_500_324_pjpeg_2638188_0c83b0ec2f75215d7c89067afad1d2fb[1]

 

According  Mr. Christian Lequindre opinion,  the Masta culte, linked to those kind of sort of  AXIS MUNDI  POLES , is sporadically spread till the western central region despite most of the scholar of the matter limite than to the Karnali area.

That's an evident example in Gurung village context, the pic was took in 1973/74.

As demonstrated by mr Christhian in his recent catalogue there are also wooden poles in the eastern area of Nepal, but refering  there to ancestors and funerary cult.

THE ARCHETYPIC ICONOGRAPHY OF AN ARTISTIC LIVING TRADITION

"...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)

- DIGITAL HIMALAYA

THANGMI FILM COLLECTION

Since 1997, Mark Turin and Sara Shneiderman have been using digital video to document the cultural complex of Thangmi shamanism and its related cosmology.

 

Below are five links of short clips of Thangmi shamans conducting rituals which include cutting hair for purification before ritual practice, a narration of the Thangmi origin myth, a healing ritual in Damarang (Dolakha district, Nepal), and an exorcism ritual and subsequent healing ritual in Kodari (Sindhupalcok district, Nepal).

1) Thangmi Shaman Film: Rana Bahadur Cutting His Hair

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Rana Bahadur having his head shaved by a relative in preparation for an important ritual. Rana Bahadur shared a great deal of his knowledge with anthropologists Shneiderman and Turin before he passed away in late 2002.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Suspa, Dolakha district, Nepal, 2000

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...


2) Rana Bahadur Origin Song

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Rana Bahadur narrating a section of the Thangmi origin myth. He beats a plate to the rhythm of his chanting. Rana Bahadur shared a great deal of his knowledge with anthropologists Shneiderman and Turin before he passed away in late 2002.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Suspa, Dolakha district, Nepal, 2000

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...

3) Jit Bahadur Healing Ritual

This film clip shows the young shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Jit Bahadur, the son of Rana Bahadur, beating his drum and going into trance to exorcise the malevolent spirits which have caused a young woman to be ill. The film was shot in complete darkness in an attempt to accurately illustrate the atmosphere of a shamanic seance.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Suspa, Dolakha district, Nepal, 2000.

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...

4) Kodari Guru Healing Ritual I

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Jhankri Maila, preparing flour effigies of the spirit world on a bamboo winnowing tray. After the preparations are complete, he commences the ritual which is a healing ritual for a young woman who has been feeling unwell for some time.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Kodari, Nepal, January 1998.

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...

5) Kodari Guru Healing Ritual II

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Jhankri Maila, with a patient. After asking some preliminary questions about his general health and diet, he checks the patient's pulse and heart and blows the infection away. Afterwards, they share a cigarette.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Kodari, Nepal, January 1998

- THE VILLAGE GODS OF SOUTH INDIA.

"....I was perplexed because the three sites I had found between Trichinopoly and Madura in that first trip were so extraordinary, so exciting, that I couldn't believe what I was later to verify through foremost authorities in London and Paris: that the village gods (Grama Devatas) were virtually unknown except to a few theologians and anthropologists..."

-Divine Support: Ghurras Wooden Churning-rod Holders From Nepal by  Paul De Smedt Paperback (2000).

 GHURRAS DIVINE SUPPORT

 

Paul de Smedt, is a Belgian industrial engineer , in this  book , the first devoted to this matter, the author explores the traditional use of wooden churning-rod holders generally known in the artistic  folk tradition of  Nepal as ghurras, putting  forward a system of classification in order to build up a symbolic interpretation of these items.

GHURRAS a

The Ghurras are  anthropomorphic carved  objects  used to guide the churning-rod during the churning of milk in order to produce butter.

In the August of 1991 and  for the first time in his  life  Mr De Smetd came across this fascinating wooden object on a stall at the 'Grote zavel' antique market in Brussels. He  was deeply impressed by this sculpture, which was distinctly anthropomorphic in character. The author remember how the  magnificent patina of these item gleamed in the sunlight,  moreover, the sculpture emanated a smell of rancid butter and milk. The stallholder informed him that it was known as a NETTI  or NETTLE  and had been collected in Nepal. He could tell him nothing specific about the real function or exact meaning of the object expect that it was perhaps an 'amulet' or  something linked with the milk or butter.

So Mr De Smetd  began to find the real meaning of this  object. He  tried to built up a collection of these items in order to give to his investigation  statistical basis. This  was the beginning of a passionate and fascinating cultural adventure. During a visit at the Rietberg museum in Zurich the Athor,  assisted by Prof. Bar,  found a publication, issued by the parisian gallery 'Le toit du monde'  (http://www.letoitdumonde.net/)  which provided some of the first information on the matter.

This mysterious object was surely  a holder for a churning rod , commonly used for churning milk in Nepal.

Some passages in the text were  however not clear for Mr De Smetd : 'Les Magars, ethnie Tibeto-Birmane etablie dans les collines de l'ouest et du centre qui vont des hautes valls jusqu'aux Plaines du Terai, fabriquent les elements de baratte terminee par des ailettes dans le recipient de battage.' (Patrick Pevenage). This citation might generate the impression that the manufacture of these objects was only linked  to the Magar tribe.

During his successive trips to Nepal in 1996, 1997 and 1998 the author made many mountain excursions  with his  friends Sukre Ale, Dawa, Surendra, Krisna, Kazi, his grand daughter Sara and his wife Maria. These excursions allowed them to explore the hilly countryside around Kathmandu, Pokhara, Sirubari, Tansen and Gorkha and gave also them the opportunity to establish contact with elderly Nepalese farmers and herdsmen from various different tribes castes.

From their direct conversations with these people of the place, Mr De Smetd could conclude with certainty that almost every tribe and caste make wooden churning- rod holders, each of them in their own specific symbolic way.

The author remarkes also that there are cases of eclecticism in transition areas or as a consequence of migrations. This fact is interesting and important  to explains the rich variety of design of these objects, although they do possess a surprising unity in form due to their anthropomorphic shape and mythological symbolism.

These functional and ritual items are known with different names, depending upon the tribe or caste concerned: tar, tara, nethi, ghurra, ghurlu, ghorlo, loti, neti, netti, in  the  Kathmandu 'market'  are  known as neti or ghurra.
