Expired: Antique Art of the Island of Madagascar
This exhibition is an invitation to an encounter with the arts of the “Red Island”, where the creative act is organic and innate. It is an integral part of community life there, but also a part of the relationships between the living and their deceased ancestors. In their conception, the magical and decorative arts of Madagascar evince quite an opposition to a premeditated and intellectual approach to creation! The styles, forms, techniques and diversity of materials used to realize them, illustrate their makers’ sensibilities, and their sometimes conflicted and sometimes harmonious connections with nature and the beyond. In his work, the Madagascan artist must negotiate with interdictions (Fady) placed on the limits of his individual freedom.
