 This is an attempt to propose an aesthetic and qualitative common ground and a more defined stylistic identity of Himalayan Tribal Arts.

For the meeting, every participant had selected some artworks in order to contribute to the debate around a possible definition of an ‘Himalayan aesthetics’;

controversial subject, which is still widely unknown to the western world or object to misleading interpretations especially if compared with the African aesthethic.

In representation of the Himalayan art, the meeting had offered  masks from different areas of Nepal, Phurba and wooden sculptures with different patinas.

 

Curator and creator of the event:

 

Dr. Andrea Mordacci 

 

in collaboration with

 

Ethnoflorence.

 

 With the hope that this project, duly enlarged and in the details curated, will be followed by the organization of a first National exhibition in Nepal of
Himalayan tribal arts, possibly during the period spring/summer 2015.

 18:00 – 20:30 : Meeting and Screening of “Three Shamans” (77 min), with the documentarists Adrien Viel and Aurore Laurent (the projection is on French).
Location : Alliance Française of Venice – Ponte dei Baretteri – San Marco 4939.
“In the heart of Himalayan hills, the Shamans travel in the ethereal. Shamans’ vocation is to relieve suffering people exploring and making contact to the ancestors and spirits’ worlds. Everyone has his method: three stories, three countries, three shamans”
About the documentary

Aurore Laurent said :
“Our purpose was to follow only one Shaman in his pratice, but during the recording, we understand that everyone has his own way to practice shamanism due to the different ethnic groups and heritage. That’s why we understand it would had been reducing telling only one history. Shamans people are usually erudites, poets or insane… We immediately decided to build the movie as a triptyque : 3 report on 3 states of shamanism in Nepal. We followed 3 ethnic groups during the documentary; Gurung, Tamang and Chepang, trying to show how various is this practice, according to ethnich, geographic and economic conditions. In the documentary are well-shown the differences between the first and most alive shamanism and the third more declined one.”

The granite pillars, brackets, and slabs that form this temple hall-mandapa- come from the Madanagopalaswamy Temple, a XVIth century building complex in the South Indian city of Madurai.

The complex is dedicated to Krishna, an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.

IMG_0960.JPG

The architectural elements installed in the Museum were purchased in 1912 by Adeline Pepper Gibson of Philadelphia while on a visit to Madurai.

They are believed to have come primarily from a frrestanding hall that one stood in front of the main shrine and was probably dismantled in the mid-nineteenth century.
