Outside the human temporality of man-shaped things,no man-made sign, a simple rough stone marks the presence of the deity,

 

daubed with red colour which holds the memory of blood sacrifices, placed under the branches of sacred tree is part of the Indian 

 

landscape,in this way also the presence of Aiyanar, the Lord, was marked in principle, by a rough of stone, the works of art, small or

 

gigantic, made of clay, larger than life, arrived after, proclaiming his exhistence.

Annette Messager

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.

FULL FATHOM FIVE 1947

Jackson Pollock 1912-1956

 detail

Oil on canvas with nails, tacks, buttons, key, coins, cigarettes, matches.

MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

NEW YORK

Gift of Peggy Guggenheim 1952

Full Fathom Five is one of the Pollock's first 'drip' work.

The top layers of the painting consist of pured
lines of black and silver house paint while a large part of the paint's crust was applied by brush and palette
knife; the result of this action is a labyrinthine web that revals an instantaneous unity between multiple
crisscrossing and planar forms with no contours.

A wide assortment of detritus such cigarette butts, coins,
key are enfolded by this paint, contributing to the painting's dense surface and churning sensation.

The title is
a quotation from the Shakespeare's play THE TEMPEST, wherein Ariel descibes a death by shipwreck:"...Full fathom five
thy father lies / Of his bones are coral made / Those are pearls that were his eyes..."

KHENIS GOSTH EATERS FIGURE

 IN  KAGBENI VILLAGE, NEPAL.

Kagbeni is a fortified two gates medioeval  village located in a strategic place at the cofluence of two river valleys, situated in a fertile area.

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.

IMG_8168.JPG

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

NEW YORK

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.
