Expired: Light lines - Dark matters
While African art is essentially figurative, it does sometimes tend towards a form of abstraction. This may happen through subtractions, which push stylization towards a complete purity of line, or on the other hand through saturation, which drowns the sculpture under an accumulation of materials or various objects that finally obscure it. This exhibition is dedicated to exploring a confrontation between these two contrasting aesthetic approaches and moreover reveals interesting parallels with major modern and contemporary Western art forms. By Galerie Olivier Larroque, based in Nîmes, at 2, rue de l’Echaudé, during Parcours des mondes 2017. For more info please visit: http://www.tribalartmagazine.com/advertisers-8#advertiser_311.
Expired: Mapping belief: mapping the world
Central to this exhibition will be the use of cartographic and diagrammatic representation to express the relationship of Man to both his terrestrial world and the greater cosmos. This amalgamation of different pictorial languages is both visually exciting and intellectually intriguing. Broadly speaking the scope of the exhibition can be divided into two main areas – theoretic cosmic maps and functional maps products of religious and secular communities in India from the 18th and 19th centuries especially from Hindu and Jain religious sects but also from Rajput courts. The exhibition will show : Jambudvipas – cosmic maps that show the universe according to the Jain concept of creation. Two monumental scale pilgrimage maps of Satrunjaya the holy temple complex in Palitana, Gujarat. Rajput paintings where cartography is interwoven with a narrative representation. Kapil Jariwala (based in London) will exhibit at 25, rue de Seine, during Parcours des mondes 2017. For more info please visit : http://kapiljariwala.com.

Expired: Portraits in the garden of sculptures
In this exhibition, the Joaquin Pecci gallery invites you to a "face-to-face" with varied sculptures and masks from Central and West Africa and the Himalayas. One part of it will literally feature "heads": Lobi, Ekoi, Not, Akan, Kastine or Bamoun, so as to magnify the art of portraiture that these sculptors have mastered. These heads are carved in wood, sometimes covered with hide, or modeled in terracotta. Each head is the seat of the vital force and the soul of the ancestor or the deceased; it sometimes turns into the protector of the family, a political agent or the focus point of a ritual. Portraits in Africa, whether conceptual or naturalistic, depict real people that were part of a family and contributed to the life of their community. But the style that prevails reflects an idealized humanity, although decorated with elements from the artist's surroundings, such as hairstyles or skin marks specific to the place and role of an individual in a tribe. This sets the individual portrait in a broader setting, as a part of the group identity. Among the selected pieces, we count a very important Chokwe sceptre, a very beautiful seated Bembe from the Jacques Kerchache collection that was published in the Mazenod, and other artworks that belonged to him. The Joaquin Pecci gallery will exhibit on the occasion of Parcours des mondes 2017 in its new space on 32 rue de Seine.

Expired: Power and Prestige
On the occasion of the 2017 Parcours des Mondes, Yann Ferrandin (Paris) is presenting an exhibition devoted to symbolic and visual ceremonial objects which function as social markers that attest as much to man’s desire for power as they do to the traditional cultures and the skills of the artists that made them. Since time immemorial, tribal societies have associated a wealth of very diverse artistic creations with their practices of governance, their social codes and their spiritual universes. A conception of man and his relationships with his peers is revealed by these objects, which may take many forms and are reserved for use by chiefs, shamans and recognized initiates. They illustrate a world of marvels, of metaphors and of ideas, and tell of myths and rituals at the same time as they are an integral part of everyday life. They are associated with both the profane and the sacred, and their aesthetic and moral values are inseparable. This exhibition will offer the presentation of objects of astonishing beauty from a variety of stylistic traditions and geographic areas, selected according to the highest aesthetic standards. The exhibition will be accompanied by the publication of a catalog which will be available at the gallery. It will take place at 33, rue de Seine, during Parcours des mondes 2017.
