The Luba


The Luba Empire was founded in 1585, in the depression of the Upemba by King Kongholo, his nephew and successor Llunga Kalala, enlarges rapidly until the kingdom territory on the left bank of the River Lualaba. At the height of the kingdom more than a million people live in tribes, various paid tribute to King Luba. At the end of XIX with DVANCED Ovimbudu of Angola and the raids of slave traders Islamic empire s'affiblit and collapsed when the Belgian colonists arrived.

The economy lm'empire Luba came from payment of tribute and redistribution of resources from agriculture, fishing and hunting, and mining.

Luba artists have created many objects related to the activity of the court, the prestige objects were usually decorated with female figures everywhere in Luba art. Because of the huge area covered by the empire there are wide variations in the corpus stylistic art Luba.


Masks:


Luba masks rare, are found mainly in the eastern part of the empire. One type of mask Luba, very similar to the masks of kifwebe Songye but has more rounded features. There are very few zoomorphic masks.

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 first type is found mostly in the western part of the Mossi, and includes masks decorated with small statues, animal or stylized face.

Arts of Africa first Black Arts Spring 1981 No. 77
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 .

Image le théâtre malien

Les plus ancien témoignages du théâtre de marionnettes se rencontrent en Inde et remontent à 4000 ans. On les trouve dans des pièces en sanskrit dont le personnage principal s’appelle sudrahada ou le teneur de ficelle. Elle existait en Chine il y a deux mille ans mais aussi dans la Grèce antique où des fouilles ont permis de retrouver de petites marionnettes à tringles en terre cuite qui si l’on se réfère à des textes anciens, étaient les protagonistes de spectacle joués à Athènes sur la scène du théâtre de Dyonisos. De nombreux auteurs latins dont Marc Aurèle, et Apulée font souvent référence aux marionnettes.

De tout temps et dans toutes les cultures les marionnettes ont joué un rôle important tant sur le plan des idées que sur celui de la création artistique. Source d’inspiration pour les uns métaphores pour les autres elles ont inspiré , Byron, Shakespeare , Goethe et Lorca ou encore Bonnard Vuillard Calder et Klee.

Le théâtre de marionnette est pour l’homme, un moyen de surmonter les crises par l’illusion, par leur puissance évocatrice , les personnages qui s’expriment ont le fascinant pouvoir de nous faire évader du monde terrestre pour nous emmener dans un univers fantasmagorique. Ces personnages nous plogent dans le monde de la métamorphose, du retournement de situation ou l’impossible devient réalité. Le quotidien se transpose dans un monde fantastique ou les rois côtoient les dragons,, où les animaux parlent pensent et agissent ou les ancêtres reviennent sur terre s’adresser aux vivants. C’est aussi un champ d’expression qui permet une approche

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

LES GRANDES EXPOSITIONS COLONIALES :

Les expositions coloniales furent organisées au XIXe siècle et dans la première moitié du XXe siècle dans les pays européens. Elles avaient pour but de montrer aux habitants de la Métropole les différentes facettes des colonies.
Les expositions coloniales donnaient lieu à des reconstitutions spectaculaires des environnements naturels et des monuments d'Afrique, d'Asie ou d'Océanie.
La mise en situation d'habitants des colonies, souvent déplacés de force, les fera qualifier dans les années 2000 de zoos humains.


La France compte alors 41,8 millions d'habitants et son Empire colonial, second derrière celui du Royaume-Uni, 67 823 000 personnes pour une superficie de 12 356 637 km².
