Dolpa District is the largest district of Nepal and one of the five districts of the Karnali Zone in Nepal.

 

The district covers an area of 7,889 km² and has a population  of 29,545 (2001)

 

Dolpa  borders Tibet  on the north and northeast, Jumla and Mugu districts of Karnali on the west, Myagdi,
Jajarkot and Rukum on the south and Mustang on the east.

 

A large portion of the district is protected by Shey Phoksundo National Park.
 

 

The name is derived from the 12th century Shey Monastery and the deepest lake in Nepal, the Phoksundo Lake, both of which
lie in the district (Source Wikipedia).

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.

ART OF THE HIMALAYAS

THE CATALOGUES

-ENIGMAS DE LA MONTANAS, MASCARAS TRIBALES DEL HIMALAYA.
ENIGMES DES MONTAGNES, MASQUES TRIBAUX DE L'HIMALAYA.

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.

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).
