Expired: Animal

From Sep 09 2014 to Sep 14 2014

In traditional African thinking, animals often interact with the spirit world and the human world. Generally, they may be represented to evoke certain qualities deserving emphasis, such as strength or craftiness, which does not exclude them being used to attest to the presence of a water genie or testifying to a sovereign’s ability to manifest themselves at a distance. While the modelling of these objects may vary between strict naturalism and a style that comes down to a few simplified shapes, animal art can also incorporate imaginative or even disturbing aspects, particularities that could be emphasised during night-time performances. In regions of the continent that were strongly marked in the domain of fine arts, the artist could be faced with the additional challenge of giving some form of material attachment to creatures whose unfathomable nature required the fusion of various zoomorphic aspects, sometimes enriched with borrowings from the human register. In the context of the 2014 edition of Parcours des mondes, the Jacques Germain gallery has put together a body of works reflecting the key place that the animal theme occupies in the material culture of black Africa. An eponymous catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

Attired idols

Expired: Attired idols

From Sep 09 2014 to Sep 14 2014

Coming from the four corners of the globe across three thousand years of history, idols, gods and ancestors adorned in all their finery constitute the exhibition theme chosen for this first participation in Parcours des mondes. Illustrating this diversity, mention could be made of the monumental stele in grey schist of a Hoysala Vishnu covered in jewels, the fragmented terra cotta of a moving Bankoni mother goddess with bracelet-laden arms, a tiny, remarkable ivory Okvik figurine with scar-marked features, among others. A catalogue of the same name accompanies the exhibition.

Baining Tapas

Expired: Baining Tapas

From Sep 09 2014 to Sep 14 2014

Art from the Pacific island of New Britain is the most ephemeral of that from Oceania. Made solely for a precise moment, steeped in the spiritual world, the objects were used once only, then hidden or ritually burned. Very few of them have survived. This remarkable group of textiles from the Baining people has however survived, remaining intact and in perfect condition. Collected by the German explorer Harting in 1900, these masks and banners were hidden, unknown and out of sight. They represent one of the most elegant traditions of Oceanic art and are presented by Kevin Conru during the Parcours.
