Descrizione libro: I Chokwe sono una delle più note etnie dell'Angola e della Repubblica Democratica del Congo. Questa monografia ne esamina la scultura a tutto tondo, analizzando le figurette usate nel rito della divinazione, la statuaria collegata ai culti della possessione humba, la statuaria classica antica (del Settecento e dell'Ottocento), definita "della terra natia", i paramenti di corte, privilegio dell'aristocrazia guerriera e le maschere lignee connesse al comando e ai riti iniziatici della circoncisione. Particolare attenzione è dedicata alle preziose effigi di Chibinda Ilunga, l'eroe civilizzatore che compare nei miti delle origini, quasi tutte portate in Europa nell'Ottocento, e alle sedie, il cui simbolismo e funzione sono rivelatori sia della religione sia della struttura gerarchica culminante nella figura del capo. Oltre alle tavole a colori, il testo è illustrato da una quindicina di fotografie, per lo più inedite, provenienti dagli archivi dal Dipartimento di Etnografia del Royal Museum of Central Africa a

Descrizione libro: Magnificently loaded with elegant plates of ceremonial and tribal objects from the Chokwe tribe and others in Angola, this exhibition catalog accompanies a show originating at the Birmingham Museum of Art in Alabama; editor Jordàn, who spent more than two years with the Chokwe and related tribes, is the museum's curator. The objects are mostly carved wood, but their polished, stylized vision of people and nature and the variety and especially the depth of feeling in masks raise them far above craft. The pieces are shown alone, as in a museum exhibit, with art stressed more than anthropology. To remedy this, seven scholarly articles by authorities on the Chokwe appear throughout, along with photos of native life. While this puts into context objects like whistles, thrones, and the intriguing divination baskets full of tiny magical charms, it has a somewhat choppy effect. One of a series of books on African art by Prestel (e.g., African Art from the Han Corey Collection, LJ 6/15/98), this covers a seldom-visited area rich in heritage.

Avec une réunion unique de sculptures des peuples kôngo, le musée Dapper décline, pour la première fois, la thématique du geste dans la statuaire.Tout en rappelant l'importance de la culture kôngo et de sa très grande influence en Amérique, le livre d'art qui accompagne l'exposition éclaire la symbolique des mouvements et des positions du corps. L'ensemble des objets de cette nouvelle exposition porte, à travers les gestes, les signes unificateurs et les croyances des peuples kôngo. En choisissant de mettre en scène les signes corporels, le musée Dapper propose un élargissement de la perception des pièces d'arts africains, où le geste fait partie du sens de l'objet. Avec des pratiques esthétiques d'une grande richesse, la production plastique des Kôngo constitue un langage, un discours métaphysique, voire idéologique, proposé à la collectivité. Le monde et la

Catalogue exposition - Musée du Président Jacques Chirac, Sarran, 2010 - 235 p., 52 ill. n/b., 160 ill. coul.
Cet ouvrage, qui accompagne l'exposition éponyme, recueille dans une première partie des notes et des photographies qu'Edmond Dartevelle avait pris lors de ses voyages au Congo et en Angola, dans les années 30 et 50. La deuxième partie de l'ouvrage s'attarde sur les très belles pièces collectées par Edmond Dartevelle, aujourd'hui réparties entre le Musée Royal d'Afrique Centrale de Tervuren et des collectionneurs privés, descendants de Dartevelle. L’imagerie de l’explorateur courageux au sens du XIXe siècle, homme d’action et de terrain, en marge d’une colonisation brutale et de savant à la Jules Verne parti à la conquête de savoirs sur l’histoire des peuples noirs et des formations géologiques du Bakongo va bien à Edmond Dartevelle, parce qu’il a voulu croiser ces domaines, en héritier des encyclopédistes français, rompant avec l’exiguïté de l’expert, risquant des totalisations partielles, tiré par un projet global toujours remis en question, toujours inachevé.

Giotto Dainelli
(Firenze 19.5 1878 – Firenze 16.11.1968)
 
 
Giotto Dainelli, figlio del generale Luigi e di Virginia Mari, nacque a Firenze il 19 maggio 1878. Vantava ascendenze illustri: il padre era imparentato con i carbonari e patrioti bolognesi Zambeccari e Ranuzzi; la madre era figlia dell’avvocato Adriano Mari (1813-1887), politico della destra che rivestì importanti cariche istituzionali. Trascorse la sua infanzia lontano da Firenze, a seguito dei cambiamenti delle sedi di servizio del padre, ed ebbe modo di conoscere l’Europa data l’abitudine della famiglia di approfittare delle vacanze estive per compiere viaggi all’estero.
Nel 1900 si laureò in Scienze naturali all’Istituto di studi superiori di Firenze, dove fu allievo del geologo e paleontologo padovano Carlo De Stefani (1851-1924), all’epoca il più illustre docente della materia (fu direttore dell’Istituto di Geologia di Firenze e accademico dei Lincei); in seguito si perfezionò all’Università di

The Pende


The Pende pushed north by the Lunda, during the 17th, settled in an area located between Loango and Kasai regions. Two hundred years later Tchokwe invaded the territories for when they migrated north from Angola, but were forced to return the territories annexed by the Belgian colonizers. The 500000 Pende mainly farmers are not governed by a central authority but by the heads of households, known as the Djogo, sometimes aided by the noble nobles. Young men are organized by age group, and must pass through various initiatives including that of circumcision during adolescence.

Art Pende can be divided into two traditions, arts, the first comes from Western Pende who live along the river Lodango, the second focuses on the eastern Pende along the Kasai River.


Masks:

The Western Pende have used a dozen different types of masks during their ceremony, they have eyes looking down a triangular nose, and sometimes leaving a protruding mouth see the teeth.

Often found three types of masks in Western collections. The first long-beard is called Kiwoyo Muyombo. The second known Mangu, show the features distorted, probably evoking the effects of an epileptic seizure. The third mask Phumbu chief called, has a hair divided into three parts.

Masks and helmets masks, associated with Pende, Oriental Minyangi are called respectively, and Giphogo. Worn by dancers during initiation ceremonies, they have

When we examine the significance of an African mask, we do not seek to know what the "message" it provides, by virtue of some essential notion of disguise and by his presence, but rather what kind of continuum it belongs. The masks are at the confluence of pictorial traditions, oral and functional none appears (under secular unable to recognize the subjects and even less discernible. The understanding of pictorial code used requires not only a review but a review of developed components as needed through the original context. Let us offer an example of the image with respect to the buffalo in the region of Zaire Kwango-Kwilu South West (1).
Synceros caffer, the largest of African cattle is a massive animal, black, cropped hair, measuring 1.50 m at the shoulder and weighing nearly a ton (900 kg.) (Fig. 1). Its heavy horns have a spacing of one meter, are curved downward and inward and form large lumps to their bases. This animal, originally occupied the central, eastern and southern Africa, frequenting the open plains, open woods and river beds and marshes bordered by reeds. Commonly preview herds of a dozen to a hundred heads, he used to graze and graze the early morning and again at dusk, seeking shade during the hottest hours but sometimes moving at night .

La collection Kerchache aux enchères

Je me souviens de Jacques Kerchache, épuisé mais rayonnant, réglant l'implantation des vitrines au millimètre près. (…) A mes yeux, ces salles sont le reflet de son âme. Elles reflètent son amour des oeuvres et des hommes qui les ont créées » (1). C'est Jacques Chirac qui témoigne ainsi de son amitié envers Jacques Kerchache en décrivant son implication lors de l'ouverture du pavillon des Sessions du Louvre, dont les dix ans d'existence viennent justement d'être fêtés.

Il était né d'un père mi-kabyle mi-catalan et d'une mère belgo-helvético-hollandaise. Il avait épousé Anne, mi-sénégalaise, mi-vietnamienne. Et, dès l'âge de douze ans, ayant rencontré par hasard l'écrivain et journaliste Max-Pol Fouchet, qui le prend sous son aile, il cherche à découvrir les cultures du monde. Les 12 et 13 juin prochain, l'étude Pierre Bergé et Associés disperse le contenu de ses pléthoriques collections : 403 lots estimés 4,9 millions d'euros.

Son épouse a manifestement conservé des momies tatouées susceptibles de déclencher des polémiques ainsi que des sculptures vaudoues qui devraient être l'objet d'une exposition ultérieure. Dans le cercle des arts primitifs, l'excitation relative à certaines pièces mises en vente est grande. La part consacrée aux arts premiers (une expression qu'il a d'ailleurs inventée) dans les estimations est majeure : un peu plus de 4 millions

Introduction

Never has been written about as much ink as traditional African sculpture. Ever, despite all attempts, the man has managed to evacuate his mental field, much less its history, that is to say of his encounter with the other. It has been a cornerstone to measure the "civilization" of the black man and his ability to create capacity variously appreciated throughout history until early this century, cubism helping, the unanimously begins to make the exceptional nature of African sculpture that was always confused with African art which it is a party, probably the most important, if one were to judge solely by the number Parts created that we have reached.

Context of African sculpture

We can talk about African sculpture in isolation from the rest of the arts of Africa south of Sahara. Every word in this area is responsible not only meaningless but history, and if we chose the term "African art" is to fully assume all we have inherited from the past in

African art

African art constitutes one of the most diverse legacies on earth. Though many casual observers tend to generalize "traditional" African art, the continent is full of peoples, societies, and civilizations, each with a unique visual special culture. The definition also includes the art of the African Diasporas, such as the art of African Americans. Despite this diversity, there are some unifying artistic themes when considering the totality of the visual culture from the continent of Africa.

    * Emphasis on the human figure: The human figure has always been a the primary subject matter for most African art, and this emphasis even influenced certain European traditions. For example in the fifteenth century Portugal traded with the Sapi culture near the Ivory Coast in West Africa, who created elaborate ivory saltcellars that were hybrids of African and European designs, most notably in the addition of the human figure (the human figure typically did not appear in Portuguese saltcellars). The human figure may symbolize the living or the dead, may reference chiefs, dancers, or various trades such as drummers or hunters, or even may be an anthropomorphic representation of a god or have other votive function. Another common theme is the inter-morphosis of human and animal.

Yoruba bronze head sculpture, Ife, Nigeria c. 12th century A.D.

    * Visual abstraction: African artworks tend to favor visual abstraction over naturalistic representation. This is because many African artworks generalize stylistic norms. Ancient Egyptian art, also usually thought of as naturalistically depictive, makes use of highly abstracted and regimented visual canons, especially in painting, as well as the use of different colors to represent the qualities and characteristics of an individual being depicted.

Art contemporain africain


L’Art contemporain africain est très dynamique. Il s'inspire aussi bien des traditions du continent que, et c'est de plus en plus le cas, des réalités urbaines contemporaines d'une Afrique en mutation, qui se cherche encore une identité. Les techniques et les supports sont variés, allant de la simple peinture aux installations avec projection vidéo, en passant par des sculptures faites en matériaux de récupération...
En 1989, l'exposition « Les magiciens de la terre » (Centre Pompidou, 1989) présentait des œuvres d'art africain contemporain (d'artistes vivants) pour la première fois en Europe, mode de monstration mettant en valeur un certain primitiviste et exotique. En 2005, l’exposition « Africa Remix » qui a été présentée en Allemagne, en Angleterre, en France et au Japon peut être considérée comme la première à présenter un panorama important de l'art contemporain spécifiquement africain, montrant surtout la richesse de l'art africain sub-saharien. Mais l'Afrique elle-même s'est dotée de centres d'art contemporain, de festivals ou biennales sont régulièrement organisés sur le continent pour mettre en valeur le talent des artistes d'aujourd'hui.
