The Yoruba


The term Yoruba describes both a language and a tribe living between Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, in an area covered by forests and savannah. Their history can be traced from the beginning of our millennium, with the civilization of Ife. Following the collapse of the kingdom of Ife kingdom of a number such as Oyo and Ijebu emerged, they in turn disintegrated during the 18th and 19th, but were revived by the colonial powers, to the end of the 19th. Today they are still the basis of the Yoruba political structure. The slave trade touched heavily Yoruba people of Nigeria and he contributed to their diaspora and the release of their rites and beliefs.


The Yoruba are prolific craftsmen, most Yoruba art objects dating from between the late 19 th and the middle of this century, and can sometimes be attributed to known artists by their names, which is an exception in African art.


During the XVI, the Ijebu kingdom, ruled areas near the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. copper imported by sailors, was traded by the Portuguese Ijebu and many bronze objects were created by their artists. These objects reflect the influence of their neighbors, the Kingdom of Benin. Nevertheless, their bells and bracelets scepters are usually decorated with figures, half human, half animal with eyes bulging and curved scars on his forehead.

The empire of Oyo between the XVII and XIX was located in the northern territories or peoples

Image Songye people

Linguistically, the Songye form part of the Luba, world, itself part of the Bantu group. Indeed there is a century old inter relation between the Songye and Luba, and they therefore share many cultural traits. Some art forms are part of this, shared heritage, according to the oral tradition the founding chieftains of the first luba kingdom, were of songye origins, and it is the Songye who introduced the idea of social stratification to the Luba and consequently the first luba chieftains are said to be of Songye Ancestry.

 

ENVIRONMENT

The Songye used to live in a forest environment till the end of the first half of the second millennium. Slowly their habitat became more savannah-like. We can still find traces of this former forest habitat in some of the art they produce. For example the costume worn with the Kifwebe mask must be entirely made from products originating in the forest from such as bark, pelts fibers etc. Today the Songye mainly live in the savannah but pockets of forest remain in their territory.

The Songye occupy a very large area in the north of the southeastern quadrant of the republic democratic of Congo.

Due to the vastness of the songye territory, it is obvious that regional stylistic, iconic and typological, exist in the ritual art produced. Some of these are the result of cross influences with their immediate neighbors.

 

NEIGHBORS

To the North of the Songye territory, live the Sungu, Tetela, the western Kusu. In the northwest we will find a few luba chiefdoms. To the west the Luntu, Luba – kassaï Kete and Binji peoples resides; one can even find pockets of Chokwe people in the southwest of Songye territory. To the south of the Songye we find a variety of luba speacking, polities, the same is true, for eastern frontier where in addition to the eastern kusu, we find Luba, Hemba, Kunda, Lumbu and Buyu people.

The Mossi


The first Mossi empire was founded during the fifteenth, by invaders from northern Ghana, today the Mossi are the largest tribe in Burkina Faso. The number of two million, they are the only people in the region to have a centralized government, headed by former Zaksoba.

Mossi sculptors are known for their polychrome masks that are worn during festivals, and to keep the crops. These masks that fulfill a function as totem, are carefully guarded when not worn, and their libations are offered in exchange for their protection and assistance.

Three different types of masks can be identified: they seem to correspond to different indigenous peoples living in this region prior to the invasion Mossi XV. The first type is found mostly in the western part of the Mossi, and includes masks decorated with small statues, animal or stylized face. The second type is included in the semicircular masks painted in white and representing positive spirits associated with the savanna. The third type of Mossi mask, called Karanga, is found mostly in the northern part of the country. It has a stylish rounded face topped by a large plate, a totemic animal or a human statue symbolizing an important ancestor. The statues are

At 350000 they live on cocoa cultivation of rice and cassava. Before that secret societies do not unite around the beginning of the century, Dan lived in autonomous villages, headed by a chief elected for its wealth and social position.

Nowadays society Leopard plays a major role in the lives of Dan: Candidates for initiation must pass a period of isolation in the forest three to four months. The dances are known for their festivals which were originally village ceremonies but who today are rather aimed at tourists during these holidays appear dancers often perched on stilts.

Masks:

Dan masks are characterized by a concave face, pointed chin a protruding mouth, high forehead and are often covered with a rich brown patina, masks of similar types exist throughout the country Dan, but some stylistic variations, can be observed. For example: the masks of the north dan often have delicate features, a high forehead smooth eye in the middle of the face and a very smooth patina obtained by immersing the mask in a mud bath. The masks of southern Dan Rather, protruding features and a grainy patina achieved by application of plant pigments.

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 .

L’art indigène des colonies françaises _ Pavillon de Marsan (Louvre, Paris) 1923

 

Stéphane Chauvet et l’exposition du pavillon de Marsan

 

Stéphane Chauvet est né le 27 Novembre 1885, à Béthune dans le Pas de Calais, il était normand d’origine, riche d’une magnifique hérédité scientifique et intellectuelle. Son père inventa la lampe à arc et le treuil Chauvet qui révolutionna les conditions d’exploitation des mines.

Entraîné dans ce courant très jeune, Stephen Chauvet manifesta une vivacité d’intelligence dont on rencontre peu d’exemples. Lauréat au concours général, bachelier de philosophie à 15 ans, le naturaliste Mangin, directeur du Museum, frappé par ses dons d’observation l’arrache à la préparation de polytechnique pour l’orienter vers la médceine et les sciences naturelles. Depuis le jour où après la guerre 14-18 il obtint de la veuve du commandant Bertrand revenant de >Zinder une petite statuette féminine du Soudan et un masque double, Chauvet fut touché par la grâce de l’art nègre et par le démon de la collection.

De 1920 à 1935 quinze années durant il sera un des plus surts animateurs de ce mouvement qui oriente l’opinion publique vers les arts indigènes et en particulier

La collection Kerchache aux enchères
Le 21 mai 2010 à 01H00 - LesEchos

 

 

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

ART GALLERY L'OEIL ET LA MAIN

41 RUE DE VERNEUIL 75007 PARIS

 EXPOSITION DU 2 NOVEMBRE AU 6 DECEMBRE 2009

 WWW.AFRICAN-PARIS.COM


 

Le Nigéria demeure l'un des pays africains les plus dynamiques en matière de production artistique, et ce dans tous les domaines. C'est à la sculpture nigériane et à ses artistes que la galerie L'Oeil et la Main a choisi de rendre hommage, à travers l'exposition "Mumuye". C'est
une vision à la fois globale et diversifiée de l'esthétique mumuye qui est proposée aux visiteurs et aux collectionneurs, à travers la présentation d'une quinzaine de pièces d'une grande qualité plastique.

Le groupe ethnique des Mumuye est situé au Nord-Est du Nigéria et se compose de sept sous-groupes aux coutumes et aux croyances distinctes. Leur origine commune se situerait, selon la tradition orale, plus au Sud du pays. Du fait de la difficulté d'accès à leurs territoires, les Mumuye ont longtemps été préservé de toute influence extérieure, jusqu'à leur soumission définitive aux Anglais dans les années 1950. En effet leur premier contact avec les Européens date de 1892, quand ils prêtèrent main forte au Jukun dans leur lutte contre les Fulani, eux-mêmes armés par les Français.

Les Mumuye vouent un culte au Vabo, c'est à dire aux divinités intermédiaires agissant entre les êtres humains et le dieu suprême La, associé au soleil. La statuaire mumuye a connu un grand succès parmi les amateurs d'art africain

Force and Measurement

Develop an aesthetic of black Africa is seen as a risky business in many ways. Is it legitimate to isolate these objects, that today we call art, the general framework of their relations and their cultural constraints? Can we submit to a test that has never existed in the minds of their creators? And can we finally see in this art - if we 'take on this term - a uniform phenomenon, despite the wide variety of both regional and local styles we offer this huge continent, following lengthy Historical developments often poorly understood? Finally, remember that this approach excludes large regions, including Africa white, that is to say the Mediterranean area with its ancient history, the eastern and southern Africa whose pastoral peoples have given rise to cultures almost without images, and finally these hunting societies, which, even in our time have not passed the stage of evolution of prehistoric rock paintings which are the main evidence of an artistic production that appears at various points the continent. Similarly, we must exclude from our contribution to the aesthetics of black African art the old feudal societies, including Benin. Our discussion is therefore limited to large areas farmers, the true cradle of

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

Texte de présentation extrait de l'ouvrage:
J. Kerchache, J-L. Paudrat, L. Stephan, L'Art Africain Jacques Kerchache, Citadelles, 1988

Sans méthode préalable, la passion de l'Afrique m'a propulsé au cœur du Gabon, m'a porté du Congo en Guinée équatoriale, de la Côte-d'Ivoire au Libéria, m'a conduit du Burkina Faso au Mali, de l'Éthiopie au Bénin, du Nigeria au Cameroun et de la Tanzanie au Zaïre. De ces expériences parfois difficiles, physiques certes, mais surtout intellectuelles et spirituelles, de ma participation à certaines cérémonies et à diverses manipulations d'objets, de mon immersion temporaire mais effective dans les cultes de l'ancienne Côte des Esclaves, je ne puis restituer aujourd'hui que des sensations, des impressions et je me garderai de toute affirmation.

Cependant, devant la sculpture africaine, il faut cesser d'avoir peur d'être profane et se laisser envahir par elle ; il faut s'en approcher, la fréquenter, se l'approprier, l'aimer. Lui offrir son temps, lui ouvrir sa sexualité, ses rêves, lui livrer sa mort, ses inhibitions, redécouvrir autre chose en soi. Sans lâcheté, ne pas hésiter à désacraliser, sans les rejeter, ses sources culturelles. Ne plus avoir cette taie sur l'œil et se laisser aller à la jouissance, se laisser gagner par la magie.

Même si nous ne pouvons contempler cette sculpture que par fragments, ceux-ci

Artists Abomey

dialogue on an African Kingdom

Mezzanine East
Tuesday 10 November 2009 to Sunday, January 31, 2010
Commission: Gaëlle Beaujean, head of collections Africa Branly

with the collaboration of Joseph Adande, art historian at the University of Abomey and Ahonon Leonard, manager and curator of the site of the royal palaces of Abomey


This exhibition presents 82 works through graphics and 8 elders, artists of the kingdom of Dahomey (1600-1894), in present-day Benin.

Its purpose is to present their works but also to question their role and status within society danhoméenne, and more specifically in the capital Abomey. Indeed, the artists chosen by the king, enjoyed great privileges while being constrained by their allegiance. The exhibition will explore their creations through the different functions of art in Abomey.

It is also to involve artists and families of artists in each type of objects presented. This new approach is the result of a research conducted by the research team, which resulted in an award-sometimes very finely certain objects.

The exhibition will last a double look at the works presented: the country of origin (through the participation of two scientists from Benin) and the French commissioner.
