my vows

 museum of modern art new york

 ETHNOFLORENCE PHOTO ART ARCHIVE.

ANNETTE MESSAGER, French, born 1943.

"MY VOWS" 1988-91

Photographs, colored graphite on paper, string, black tape and pushpins.

Gift of the Norton Family foundation, 1992.

My vows brings together hundreds of photos that each present a small part of a human body: mouth, ear,
foot, nose, genitals, hand, breast, and so on.

Each hangs from a string, joining and partly obscuring others.
Together they make a dense circle whose diameter  is barely greater than the height or arm span of a tall person.
The individual elements, male and female, old and young, seductive and repellent, form a whole that is greater
than the sum of its parts. Physical, psychological and sexual identities commingle in an inexhaustive variety of
unpredictable relationship, which together threaten to overwhelm the stable patterns of our familiar arrangements.

THE CATALOGUES

A MASQUE DECOUVERT 

REGARDS SUR L'ART PRIMITIF DE L'HIMALAYA

MARC PETIT 1995 STOCK/ALDINES

"Les formes ont plus mémoire que le hommes. Ce qui surgit là, dans tous ces visages silencieux, graves ou hilares, dessine le relief d'un continent submergé: la vieille Asie des chamanes et des cultes de possession.

Face aux formules codifiées des classicismes indien et tibétain, l'art primitif de l'Himalaya affirme sa singularité, sa puissance d'invention et son humour, sa poésie et sa force expressive. "

GetAttachment[1]

GetAttachment[1] (2)

Marc Petit is a collector of primitive arts for more than 30 years, this catalogue, in which was edited a wide selection of his masks collection, played in the mid of the 90's a pivotal role  to make known the primal arts of the people of Himalaya to a large number of tribal arts lovers.

The book was awarded with the  Grand Prix du Livre des Arts of the Société des Gens de Lettres.

Marc Petit donated in 2003  25 Nepalese masks of his collection  to the Musée du Quai Branly of Paris; five of these items are already exhibited in the permanent collections of the Museum in the Asian section.

Several of his  masks will be showcased in the exhibition: IN THE WHITE OF THE EYES, HIMALAYAN MASKS / DANS LE BLANC DES YEUX, MASQUES HIMALAYA , which will be held at the Museum du Quay Branly from 9 November 2010 to 30 January 2011.

The SOAS archive of Professor Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf (1909-1995) includes photographs, cine film and written materials.

It reflects his fifty years of scholarship.

It is especially valuable because it documents these cultures before many changed rapidly with the advent of external civil administration after the mid-twentieth century.

In 1995, Nicholas Haimendorf donated his father's archive to SOAS, where it was deposited in the Special Collections department of the Library.

The photographic collection, comprises more than 21,000 images

The late Gustavo Gili was a friend and a passionate collector of Himalayan masks of Barcelona, in this catalogue, curated by Francois Pannier was edited a part of his collection.

First to collect Himalan art Gustavo Gili put toghether an important and selected collection devoted to the traditional arts of Africa.

The passion for the masks of the Himalayas begun in Gustavo after to have bought his first piece, the mask n1 of the catalogue, a sort of Frankestein item displaying a lot of ancient restaurations.

This remarkable piece, was also edited in the 1989 pivotal catalogue curated by  Francois Pannier and Stephane Mangin:  Masques de l'Himalaya. Du primitif au classique (at that time the mask was in another private collection of Barcelona) and exhibited in the 1991 exhibition at Musee de la Castre of Cannes.

Enigmas de la Montanas is a catalogue that reflects the sophisticate taste of Gustavo, an important catalogue to understand the still 'hidden and unknown' arts of the Himalayas.

During the 19th century the human guards of the gates become superfluous and were replaced with two human figure moulded from clay each  named KHENIS or Ghost Eaters, primitive iconographic subjects probably remanants of the ancient BON religion.

Allora come oggi scarsamente recensite, le arti tradizionali della vasta area himalayana sono latrici di un variegato , ricchissimo e originale repertorio iconografico, frutto della sincretica fusione di stilemi classici e popolari.

Ogni oggetto sembra essere in tal senso latore di una memoria  ancestrale che di volta in volta memorizza, interpreta e rielabora dettagli stilistici dal carattere spesso antinomico, così da  risultare, anche all'osservatore più attento, autentici 'rebus' figurativi, nei quali la presenza di simbologie  archetipicihe universali non è infrequente.

Queste considerazioni non sono però  del tutto valide per la statuaria arcaico-animistica dell'Ovest Nepal.

Queste  sculture  costituiscono la vitale , universale e cristallizzata archetipica testimonianza di culti e credenze popolari  che affondano le proprie radici in un remoto passato  ormai da noi dimenticato ma certamente, un tempo, comune al sentire di  tutti gli uomini.

Sono antecedenti alla differenziazione  ed evoluzione degli stili 'locali', sono opposte alla cd arte tribale, qualcosa che attiene ad una specifica e locale  geolocalizzazione temporale di stili ed iconografie.

Impermeabili alle influenze 'stilistiche' delle religioni major della regione, queste figure riassumono in sè un ricco ed unico  repertorio di credenze sempre più prossimo al collasso.

Uno scientifico e sistematico field work è oggi disperatamente urgente.

Nell'attesa  Ethnoflorence ha intrapreso una mappatura dell'area ed uno studio iconografico-comparativo dei manufatti

THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART

THE ANCIENT ARCHETIPYC ICONOGRAPHY OF THE RITUAL WEAPONS AND ANTHROPOMORPHIC FIGURES FROM UTTAR PRADESH.

034

hese anthropomorphic figures, harpoons, ax blades (celts) and anntennae swords were cast and hammered from unalloyed copper.

They may be dated 1500 to 1000 bc.

Given that pure copper is a relatively soft metal and most of the objects ahow little  or no signs of wear, it seems likely that their function was largely dedicatory.

Hoards of such objects have been found across north India, the greatest concentration being in Uttar Pradesh.

The findspots suggest they were ritually deposited in rivers or marshes, though several related antennae swords were recovered in late Indus Valley civilization (ca. 1500 b.c.) burials at Sanauli.

AUTRES MAITRES DE L'INDE

CREATIONS CONTEMPORAINES DES ADIVASI, MUSEE DU QUAI BRANLY PARIS

01 AUTRES MAITRES DE L'INDE CREATIONS CONTEMPORAINES DES ADIVASI

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.

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.

"...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).

"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 ..."

"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)

"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."

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)
