Ogni collezione, come la tela del pittore o lo spartito musicale del musicista, ha i suoi tratti peculiari, una sorta di fil rouge che rende unica ed irripetibile, la recherche del collezionista.

A prima vista disomogenee complesse collezioni di vari settori delle arti premiers e di arte contemporanea riunite da un singolo collezionista, ad una più attenta analisi possono disvelare invece evidenti connessioni e punti di contatto, rivelandoci come il collezionista abbia 'inseguito' quella nota specifica, quel tratto peculiare, quell'archetipo universale in materiali solo all'apparenza incompatibili e differenti.

Solo oggi capisco come questa fosse la filosofia del compianto amico e collezionista di Barcellona Gustavo Gili.

Nel catalogo Passione d'Africa (pag.193) Chantal Dandrieu delinea il carattere , il criterio di ricerca in campo africano di Max Itzikovitz , tipico di un occhio indipendente, non conformato alle direttive ed agli stereotipi del mercato, sempre pronta a scoprire "...cose nuove e ignorate" e senza il timore di difendere le proprie nuove scoperte.

In un breve quanto formale scambio di opinioni sull'arte Himalayana Itzikovitz mi scrisse che era alla ricerca di capolavori.

Frutto di una ricerca trentennale la sua collezione Himalaica sembra ispirarata da questo presupposto estetico. Le parole della Dandrieu sul suo carattere trovano conferma nel ricordo del suo primo acquisto in questo settore, la 'discovery' di una anonima e misteriosa maschera, qualcosa che non assomigliava a niente che avesse visto in precedenza. Non sapeva nemmeno da quale area provenisse. In seguito Itzikovitz decise di acquistarne altre della stessa tipologia, senza preoccuparsi dell'assenza di un "notorious pedigree", uso, o attribuzione etnica. Una "unusual practice among lovers of primitive arts" sempre ansiosi di osservare "the unchallengeable" criteri dell'età, autenticità, origine. Libero da ogni pregiudizio, sorretto soltanto dalla sua intuizione, collezionò oggetti senza storia guidato dal criterio estetico e da "fresh eyes", allibito da back sides che ogni collezionista si sognerebbe di trovare in "a very ancient Dan mask from the Ivory Coast, or a Quiche one from Guatemala...".

Il nome che Max Itzikovitz ha dato ad alcuni dei suoi oggetti Himalaici disvela probabilmente in parte il fil rouge della sua eterogena ricerca intellettuale di un archetipo universale "Baule monkey begging", "Olga, Tribute to Picasso", "Francis Bacon's prize.fighter", "The astonished Inuit", "The Gesuit", "The Batak" "Boris Karloff in meditation" "Fantomas" "The monkey with eyes shut" etc.

Con il catalogo WOOD SCULPTURE IN NEPAL JOJERS AND TALISMANS scopriamo un lato ineidito di questo collezionista internazionale di Arti Premiers, una sorta di parziale autobiografia, uno specchio nel quale si riflette una parte della sua anima più intima, non soltanto un catalogo settoriale, ma il maturo frutto di una mistica ricerca visuale, ineludibile capitolo di un percorso ..... della sua indipendente, personale, peculiare ed instancabile recherche archetipica interdisciplinare.

In assenza di cataloghi, provenienze, studi etnografici, esibizioni temporanee o permanenti, parlare dell'arte dei Santal people del Bihar, Orissa, West Bengala,  è qualcosa di estremamente arduo.
In un 'epoca in cui anche le arti premiers si sono asservite alle logiche del mercato globale, una piccola produzione artistica di questo tipo sembra non avere spazio;  perché pubblicare un catalogo o finanziare una mostra quando poi il Mercato non se ne può avvantaggiare? E' una questione di numeri... che hanno il colore dei soldi. Meglio  continuare a pubblicizzare sempre  le stesse collezioni Major di Arts Premiers, il ritorno in termini di Pubblicazione/Provenienza assicurerà un certo e già calcolato appeal da esibire in Aste e Gallerie  perpetuando così un Mercato sempre più alla ricerca di chimere  e certezze...e nel frattempo infestato da cinquanta anni da migliaia di oggetti 100% fake.

dyn003_original_435_527_jpeg_2638188_b2ed9717c32b867b298978c2f4fc3257[1]


Allorché furono intrapresi i primi studi sul terreno l'antica tradizione culturale dei Santal era già entrata in una fase di  rapido e repentino  declino.

Negli anni 90's durante l'inaugurazione di una mostra a Cannes chez le Musee de la Castree il collezionista ed artista nizzardo Fernandez Arman davanti ad un vecchio liuto antropomorfo, recente acquisizione del Museo, ebbe a commentare "..venant du Santal, nom en soi, evocatour. Sa presence et sa personnalité nous interpellent. Ce petit chef-d'oeuvre de sculpture attire notre regard au fond du sien. C'est bien ici l'example d'un objet d'artisanat, ecchapant a son usage pour acceder a l'intemporal"

E come meravigliarsi di questa definizione, i liuti monocorde dei Santal , dhodro banam, sono robuste sculture antropomorfe , intagliate nel  legno gaulico , connotate da sontuose  patine color mogano, considerate dai loro stessi artefici alla stregua di esseri viventi, latori di poteri magici, strumenti mediatici che connettono il mondo visibile con il soprannaturale.

La storia dell' origine dei Banam (che tradotto significa corpo) affonda le sue radici in un arcaico passato fatto di incorrotte tradizioni orali perpetuate di generazione in generazione. Un'origine che affonda la sua nascita nella mitologia dei Santal People. Nel sacrificio di una giovane sorella, nella compassione di un giovane fratello, nella metamorfosi mistica dei resti della prima in un albero di gaulic ... da  un ramo del quale nascerà il primo mitico Banam. Uno strumento che riproduce un suono simile a quello degli esseri umani.

Sui peculiari  elementi strutturali di questo strumento 'rituale', imperniati nel riassumere le varie parti anatomiche del corpo umano e nell'attribuzione a ciascuna di esse di elementi naturali basilari , recepiti anche dalla mitologia dei Santal,(aria, terra, fuoco etc) hanno investigato insigni musicologi indiani; personalmente a queste accademiche e poco evocative descrizioni preferisco le poche righe che Ms Stella Kramrisch dedicò ai Banam nel suo catalogo " Unknown India Ritual Art in Tribe and village" Philadelphia 1968 ".The ... Santal ... carve their one-stringed lutes ... sometimes in the shape of woman ... transfiguring the resonance of the instrument into rotundities known from Hindu sculpture and brought to the tribal level by the simplifications and distortions demanded by the shape of the instrument. The prophetic head with its far-seeing inlaid eyes, traversed at the back by the tuning keys as a kind of  ear-ornament, carried aloft on a neck of ordinate lenght, is a noble mask. Through its thin lipped mouth a god may speak - as he does through the  dance mask of another tribe, the Bhuiya...Arms and hands closely hug the curved plane of the sounding-box body whose firmness is enhanced visually by the broad collar of the necklace....Sound and mask, the prophetic voice which speaks through mask and instrument, link auditory and visual experience in one manifestation of the numinous." 

Quasi una funzione oracolare quella che ci suggerisce il testo, latrice di profezie e divinazioni propiziatorie, utili in un contesto rurale dominato da clans patriarcali nei quali l'elemento musicale svolge un importante ruolo non soltanto culturale ma anche rituale, connesso con la fertilità delle messi, intercalato da danze da tenersi prima e dopo la stagione delle pioggie e tra la semina ed il raccolto. Danze rituali nelle quali donne abbigliate in Sari sono accompagnate da gruppi  di musicisti.

Da un punto di vista iconografico i suddetti gruppi di danzatrici si ritrovano rappresentati sia nei carved tops dei Santal Banam che intagliate ad altorilievo nei pannelli delle loro lettighe nuziali. Anche la celebrazione del matrimonio è pervaso da precise ritualità e importanti funzioni sociali, non ultima quella di legare tra loro i vari clans patriarcali. Circa la funzione rituale della lettiga nuziale Ms Stella Kramrisch ricorda come "...when a Santal crafsman begins his work on the litter,  a pair of pigeons is sacrificed ... when the litter is completed and its owener taken possession two more pigeons are part of anoher sacrifice, ... the activity of carving is part of the marriage rite, as it the procession of the marriage litter...". Lo stile iconografico di questi pannelli è connotato da un estrema, solenne e  monumentale definizione stilistica delle figure, scolpite sia frontalmente che di profilo, parafrasando Ms Stella Kramrisch "...somehow paralleling Egyptian reliefs...". 

Tra i temi 'trattati' in questi pannelli istoriati, oltre alle già succitate danze rituali propiziatorie, si annoverano le fasi del matrimonio stesso, cerimonie locali,  scene di vita quotidiana, i miti di creazione dei Santal e dei relativi 12 Clans, scene di guerra celebrative della ribellione del 1855 (Santal Hul).

Tra il Febbraio ed il Maggio 2007 si è tenuta al Crockerart Museum di Sacramento (CA) la prima mostra in occidente dedicata a questi rari ma splendidi pannelli istoriati dal titolo: Palkee: Wedding Conveyances of North India. http://www.crockerartmuseum.org/exhibitions/exhib_pages/P...

Sul mercato di Katmandu sono apparse ormai da anni 'povere' imitazioni dei pannelli originali, scolpite su vecchie assi si connotano per un stile approssimativo e la totale assenza di patina.

******************

THE MUSIC MUSEUM OF NEPAL

ban1[1]

The Music Museum of Nepal was founded in the year 1995 with a view to collecting, preserving and glorifying Nepali folk musical instruments. There are more than 100 ethnic groups in Nepal, each with their own culture and traditions to mark every occasion from birth to death with music. Each group organizes various musical ceremonies and plays their own musical instruments in accordance with traditions and rituals. Many groups such as Gaine, Damai, Badi have adopted folk music as their way of life and play folk musical instruments professionally. Our study has found more than 525 kinds of musical instruments in Nepal. 

Folk musical instrument makers, musicians, singers and dancers have long had a lowly position in Nepalese society and their arts and skills have not been fully recognized, appreciated or properly rewarded. Consequently the people of Nepal have not generally developed a national pride in their folk music and successive Governments have not seen the importance in keeping alive the country’s intangible musical heritage. Many songs have undoubtedly already been irrevocably lost; many traditional folk musical instruments have disappeared. Nepalese culture is in a state of flux and the future of the extended family tradition is likewise unstable. Singers, musicians, dancers and instrument makers are consequently increasingly unable to pass on their arts and skilled crafts to their children and grand children.

 

From modest beginnings NFMIM has grown into a vibrant and dynamic institution where people with a common interest in Nepali folk music meet daily. It is a living museum.

 

The museums aims are the preservation and conservation of folk musical instruments and recording folk musicians, singers and dancers audio visually for posterity. These recordings are also used to promote interest in the museum’s work. Field research is ongoing and there is a regular weekly programme of concerts and meetings. The themes of these events are varied, always interesting and have concentrated on the music and/or folk songs of particular ethnic groups, have focused on a particular (often rare) instrument, have featured famous singers and musicians or have been dedicated to the memory of a beloved, past singer or musician.

 

Adults and children are encouraged, inspired and helped to learn playing techniques and in the future the museum hopes to be in a position to establish a research center, archive, library and school of folk music. It is envisaged that this school will provide accreditation and certification for the skills and achievements of musicians, singers, dancers and craftsmen. The museum wishes to promote and improve the status of these people in Nepal’s society and to inform all citizens about the musical heritage it stands to lose if remedial action is not taken before it is too late.

To this end in 2005 Ram Prasad Kadel published an illustrated catalogue of NFMIM’s collection in the Nepali Language ‘Nepali Lokbaajaa’ (Folk Musical Instruments of Nepal). It is hoped that the publication of his book in the English Language will serve to raise international awareness of Nepal’s contribution to world music and will encourage contact from music establishments and music lovers everywhere. The demise of Nepal’s unique musical heritage would not only be a National tragedy but would be a great loss for the wider Musical World.
