• Fake Tabua in Fiji

    May, 2017

    From the FIJI TIMES ONLINE : A investigation has been launched by the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs on the circulation and sale of fake tabua (whale's tooth) in the country. Being aware of this issue, which it said had been going on for some time, it took a serious twist when one of the fake whale's tooth was presented to the Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama, in one of his official engagements in Tailevu recently. iTaukei Affairs permanent secretary Savenaca Kaunisela said they confiscated more than 40 fake tabua last week. In an exclusive interview with The Fiji Times yesterday, he said the 40 tabua were confiscated from different places, with majority found in villages. "This is not the first time we had come across this issue. It has been going on for quite some time now until it was brought to our attention after we visited one of the villages in Tailevu last week," Mr Kaunisela said. "Fijian communities and villages are the very places where these fake tabua are found and the sad part is the villages are not even aware of this." He said they would conduct an investigation and find out the origin of the fake whale's tooth.

  • Kiribati Armour at Cambridge

    March, 2017

    The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is proud to present the focused results of an interdisciplinary collaboration.
    This new collaboration between the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and Tungaru: the Kiribati Project, focuses on the extraordinary suits of armour made in the small islands of Kiribati throughout the 19th century.
    By looking closely at the armour we will discover how these complex objects were made, worn and used. Other objects on display will explore the contemporary relevance of this armour to I-Kiribati people today. The display will also include a new suit of armour made especially for the Museum by artists Kaetaeta Watson, Lizzy Leckie and Chris Charteris.
    Exhibition curated by Alison Clark and Rachel Howie.
    The research leading to this exhibition has received funding from the European Research Council project Pacific Presences [http://pacificpresences.maa.cam.ac.uk] under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, grant agreement no.324146]11.

  • Fine Oceanic and Eskimo Art in Basel

    June, 2016

    FINE OCEANIC and ESKIMO ART in BASEL

    Angela Berney Fine Arts unveils a unique collaboration between Karsten Greve and Anthony JP Meyer – for a 3 week-long joint exhibition in her gallery on Münsterplatz in Basel.

    Anthony JP Meyer is very pleased and honored to share this exhibition with Karsten Greve - showcasing the two worlds of contemporary art and early non-western art together – not as a confrontation but as a juxtaposition and a celebration of the interrelations between the art –forms both new and old, and offering new perspectives.

    This first event is the fruit of a prolonged reflection on collaborative exhibitions of contemporary and early non-western art showing the determination of the artists to make a lasting impression on their environment and the continuity of their artistic expression throughout materials, time and space.

    Claire Morgan’s use of animal and plant materials to create her artistic and spiritual world relates directly to the early Oceanic and Eskimo belief systems, which transcend available materials into the physical representations of their spiritual world.

    The show opens on June 13th and throughout the week of ART Basel we will be pleased to offer every morning breakfast and gallery talks from 9:30 to 11 AM with guest speakers from both the Contemporary and Tribal art worlds. Please see the invitation for the schedule. Anthony JP Meyer will be giving the first breakfast talk on tuesday June 14th.

    Angela Berney Fine Arts is located on the Münsterplatz just across from the great Münster Cathedral and next to the Museum der Kulturen : ANGELA BERNEY FINE ARTS, Münsterplatz 17, CH 4001 Basel, Switzerland.
