Orisha Yoruba


Serge Schoffel - Art Premier


La Galerie du Crous de Paris
11, rue des Beaux-Arts, 75006 Paris

For this year’s Parcours des Mondes, Galerie Serge Schoffel is devoting an exhibition to Yoruba art. People of Yoruba culture and language groups numbered about ten million souls at the beginning of the 20th century and today that number is three times bigger. The Yoruba were divided into kingdoms spread out in the southwestern quarter of Nigeria and the southeastern part of the Republic of Benin, and trace their origins to the ancient city of Ile-Ife from the 11th through 15th century, and to the ancient Kingdom of Benin which flourished between the 16th and 19th centuries. In Yoruba sculpture, archetypes such as ancestral figures, maternities, cup-bearers, mingle with a repertoire of symbols derived from ifa divination and which are often related to the Orishas.

Australia in dreams


Arts d'Australie Stéphane Jacob


Galerie de Causans
25 rue de Seine

On the occasion of this year’s Parcours des Mondes, Stéphane Jacob will focus on the Australian Aboriginal artists of the Central Desert and Arnhem Land, as well as on the Torres Strait, Queensland, islanders. Dot paintings for which the desert artists are so well-known will thus be on hand and so will contemporary totemic sculptures, prints and works created using recycled fishing nets by artists of the ghostnet network. While the source of inspiration for Australian artists remains closely connected with the Dream Time, which was the Time of Creation for Aborigines, they have successfully enhanced their people’s iconographic vocabulary through the adoption of new designs and the use of new materials, and produce contemporary works which blend abstrac- tion with the sacred.

In Praise of Folly


Galerie Alain Bovis


9 rue des Beaux-Arts 75006 Paris

Galerie Alain Bovis will be showing a selection of traditional works from Africa, Asia and Oceania in its exhibition, In Praise of Folly. Folly is seen both as a source of inspiration for artists, an ode to often exuberant formal inventions and a projection of the human spirit that expresses itself through certain magical and religious rites, as well as in objects that are "charged" with materials deemed to have obscure powers. These works will be presented in conjunction with paintings that also evoke the creative aspects of folly.

Ferocious poetry - Ancient Arts of New Ireland


GALERIE FLAK


8 Rue des Beaux-Arts, paris

Galerie Flak takes great pleasure in presenting an exhibition on the traditional arts of New Ireland at this year’s Parcours des Mondes. Replete with poetry and both fero- cious and refined, the art of New Ireland is characterized by its virtuosity and the audaciousness of its compositions. In this subtle game between architecture, sculpture and painting, human and animal figures emerge and intermingle. The gallery will show an exceptional collection of fifteen works formerly in German museum collec- tions (Berlin, Leipzig, Stuttgart) and from prestigious private collections (Pierre and Claude Vérité, Loed Van Bussel, Arthur Speyer, et al.). These will include Tatanua and Kepong masks, striking Malagan effigies and friezes full of interlocking and intertwi- ning figures, an elegant canoe prow ornament collected in 1894 and an over one meter high Malua mask with representations of an uninterrupted series of phantasmagorical dancing figures.

Materia


Galerie Olivier Larroque


Galerie Hug
2 rue de l'Echaudé, 75006, Paris

All people of the world from fishermen on the island of Hokkaido to the Hopi Indians of the Arizona plains and the shepherds along the banks of the Niger River, have taken advantage of their environments to help shape their artistic creations. There may be a subtle recycling of materials used in hunting or perhaps a targeted collecting of materials in a natural and familiar environment. These demiurge artists, blacksmiths, pain- ters and sculptors also integrate goods into their works obtained through trade with other peoples - exchanges made initially with neighbors and then later with others much further way as the first explorations got underway. Iron, wood, wickerwork, ham- mered copper, bronze, buffalo hide or parchment, stone, carpet nails, burls, birch bark, cotton, bone, reindeer bones, beads, hair and shell are but some of the materials involved. From a sumptuous crocodile and elephant leather Bedja shield from Sudan to a Gabonese hammered bronze leaf Kota reliquary on a wooden armature; from a South African Zulu skimming ladle - masterpiece of basketry collected in the nineteenth century - a Bozo processional figure of Mali of the 1960s, through rare objects from Asia, Oceania and the Americas, thirty works rigorously chosen testify to the genius of non-Western arts.

Masks of West Africa


Galerie Abla et Alain Lecomte


4 rue des Beaux Arts. Paris 75006

In keeping with the predilection for “fetishes” that they have had for many years, Abla and Alain Lecomte have chosen to present a private collection centered on sacred masks of West and Central Africa, some of which are rarely seen in collections and very unusual on the market like the Nigerian Mama crests, four astonishing pieces that combine the buffalo, the bird and the ‘extra-terrestrial’. A beautifully Ijebu mask, also Nigerian, with a reddish patina is a testimony to the talent and creative inventiveness of the Yoruba sculptors. Another noteworthy object is the very old hard wood and polychrome Mossi crest from Burkina Faso.

Zoomorphism


Galerie Meyer – Oceanic Art


17 rue des Beaux Arts

While Western civilization creates tales, fables, myths and legends in which zoomorphism is often linked to a monstrous or fantastic world, among the peoples of Oceania and Eskimo, animism guides the imagination by suggesting important interactions with the world. human. Their creative creations that take animal form, are mostly marine and often refer to their power. As a result, the Meyer Gallery presents during this Journey of the Worlds, the way animal forms are carved in all sorts of objects such as war sticks, ritual or daily tools. Taking the position that man is also an animal, tribal beliefs include him in his transcendental spheres.

The Spirit of Geometry


DANDRIEU - GIOVAGNONI


Atelier DL - Didier Luttenbacher
8, rue des Beaux-Arts

It is the spirit of geometry that dominates this group of fifteen old African sculptures that originate from Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Liberia. A rich gamut of forms is revealed through masks, figures and utilitarian objects that include rectangles, circles, lozenges, triangles and squares. Both the large 80 centimeter long rectangular wooden Koro mask, highlighted with ochre and brown ‘diamond dots’ and the impressive circular Yoruba bronze marriage currency, with its two tapered extremities, are excellent examples of this. The most mysterious object in the ensemble is undoubtedly the Loma chief’s stool, a complex and elaborate form that bears an uncanny resem- blance to a sculpture by Brancusi and was in the prestigious Mario Meneghini collection.

Ronald Noorman


Michel Thieme Tribal Art


Galerie Artisyou
10 Rue des Beaux Arts, 75006 Paris

Besides being a talented collector of tribal art, Ronald Noorman was best known to all as a modest but strong-willed artist. After an education at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam where he learned to paint, he devoted himself exclusively to drawing throughout a long and accomplished career. In the words of Suzanna Héman of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam: “The intimacy of the art of drawing, in which the thought, through the hand, immediately touches the paper and which hardly leaves space for corrections, was Noorman’s ‘metier pur sang’. His drawings are characterized by simple forms and move between abstraction and figuration. In some drawings elements of landscapes can be recognized, others are completely abstract. With charcoal, crayon, pastel, and gouache, Noorman searches for a balance between powerful and tender movements”. About the rather small format of most of his works he wrote himself: "As an artist I am not easily impressed by big works. I prefer to stick to the human format. On small format I have to concentrate on power, monumentality, tension, spaciousness and flow.” Words that speak true and resounded in all his choices. More information about Ronald Noorman and his work can be found on the website: www.ronaldnoorman.nl

Christophe Hioco


GALERIE LA FOREST DIVONNE
12 rue des Beaux-Arts 75006 Paris

This panorama unfolds from Gandhara in the northwestern portion of the Indian Peninsula, whose composite aesthetic blends Greek, Roman and Persian influences, up to the Golden Age of Indian sculpture, in particular the Gupta (4th through 6th century) and Pala (10th through 12th century) periods.

The Art of the Collection: Jan Calmeyn


Galerie Bernard Dulon


Galerie Bernard Dulon
10 rue Jacques Callot, 75006 Paris

The work of Belgian sculptor, Jan Calmeyn, is profoundly marked by the formal aesthe- tics of African artists, by their inventiveness and by the myriad sculptural solutions they have developed since time immemorial and all over their continent. For Parcours des Mondes this year, Bernard Dulon has chosen to show Jan Calmeyn’s works alongside the African ones in her collection that did so much to nourish her creativity. The result will be a sensitive dialog of form and materials, negative and positive space and equilibrium and instability.
