    The Corner Stone… Stone, the oldest material on earth and true matrix of the terrestrial globe is the material of predilection with which to cut, strike and build. It is the material of the first tools of the human era - or at least it is the one that has reached us as such. Rising from the bowels of the earth the first Hominian who picked up a stone to break a nut or a piece of wood or perhaps to throw it at an animal or a threat started an inexorable process which still today after nearly 7,000,000 years of continuous evolution still serves with relatively few modifications. In many places on earth the last stone tools have been replaced by metal ones only 200 years ago. In the Arctic, slate knife blades and harpoon points were still used in the late 19th century. In New Guinea stone blades are still used sometimes and pestles and mortars are very much present - even in our Western and Oriental kitchens. Download

Cette exposition se tient en même temps que l'exposition "Métagraphies" : les dessins étranges et singuliers de l'artiste Serge Dubuc : 27/04 au 26/05 Ces deux expositions concomitantes Signes, Volutes et Graphismes et Métagraphies, tentent de nous exposer et nous expliquer les différentes manières de l'enregistrement et de la transmission des mythes et histoire des cultures oraux océaniennes n'ayant pas développé l'écriture au regard des dessins de l'artiste Serge DUBUC qui justement utilise les signes et lettres de notre écriture pour nous raconter des histoires visuelles...... Glyphs, Arabesques and Graphics : From text to speech the visual is heard : 27/04 to 26/05 From the Massim lime spatula whose ancestral figure is adorned with spirals and zigzags to the Aborigine Churinga covered with minute incised lines or circles and spirals to the paddle whose blade is adorned with an impressive mythological fish, this exhibition connects and synergizes the signs and letters that make up our various daily functional and ritual languages. This exhibition is held at the same time as the exhibition "Metagraphics": the strange and singular drawings of the artist Serge Dubuc: 27/04 to 26/05 These two concurrent exhibitions Glyphs, Arabesques and Graphics and Metagraphics, try to expose and explain to us the different ways of recording and transmitting myths and history in the Oceanic oral cultures that have not developed writing in contrast to the drawings of the artist Serge DUBUC who uses the glyphs and letters of our writing to tell us visual stories...

    Il y a 40,000 ans, l’être humain, aux profondeurs de l’hiver perpétuel de l’Âge de Glace, a su créer une forme d’expression artistique remarquablement abouti. Seul nous reste des bribes - notamment ses sculptures en os, ivoire et pierre et bien sur les peintures et les outils de silex. Depuis, l’homme a rayonné sur la planète entière et même un peu au-delà vers la Lune. Partout il a poussé son expression plastique dans ses retranchements allant jusqu’à l’art conceptuel. De tous ces expressions plastiques seul ceux des peuplades de l’Arctique semblent avoir gardé un lien direct avec les premières réalisations artistiques de l’époque des glaciations. Les peuplades du Grand Nord, que ce soit de Sibérie, du Nord de l’Amérique ou du Groenland ont perpétuer à leur manière évolutive les représentations sculpturales animales et humaines y compris ceux de la métamorphose et le transformisme cher aux croyances animistes. Je vais vous emmener sur un long voyage visuel a la rencontre de ces magnifiques œuvres d’art universelle que nous ont légué les Eskimo depuis plusieurs milliers d’années et même jusqu’à hier… Download

  • OCEANIC & ESKIMO ART in BASEL

    CLAIRE MORGAN AND FINE OCEANIC & ESKIMO ART

    This summer in Basel, Angela Berney Fine Arts will unveil a unique collaboration between two completely different yet complementary points of view and periods in the art world.

    Angela Berney Fine Arts is delighted to welcome two preeminent art dealers - Karsten Greve and Anthony JP Meyer – for a month-long joint exhibition. 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.

    The moment is opportune to jointly exhibit the organic works of artist Claire Morgan and those of the early artists of the Pacific Ocean, thus continuing the tradition and importance of high quality art in the centre of the old town Basel. Indeed, this year again the old town will become the focus of attention for art lovers and collectors during ART Basel with the new Kunstmuseum and of the ART Basel Parcours on the historic Münsterplatz.

    Karsten Greve and Anthony JP Meyer together with Angela Berney seize the opportunity to draw attention to the interrelations between the worlds of art, offering a new perspective. Both dealers in accord with their host, have long appreciated the juxtaposition or intertwining of their respective art worlds. Claire Morgan’s use of animal and plant materials to create her artistic and spiritual world relates directly to the early tribal belief systems which transcend available materials into the physical representations of their spiritual world.

    Angela Berney Fine Arts is located on the Münsterplatz just across from the great Münster Cathedral and next to the Museum der Kulturen.
  • INDIGENOUS

    Exhibition : June 02 - June 25, 2016

    Galerie Meyer - Oceanic Art
    17 rue des Beaux Arts
    75006 Paris
    France
    The white cloth backdrop in many of Martin Schreiber's self-portraits, staged in the luxurious fertile countryside of the Perche region of France, is of course reminiscent of Irving Penn's photographs from the 1970 expedition to Papua New Guinea - but more importantly to the very first photos of Papuans taken by German ethnologists and anthropologists at the beginning of the 20th century.

    There on the hot and humid banks of the Sepik River they set up their chemical vats, tripods and backdrops to photograph the indigenous people of New Guinea. Anthropomorphic photography was the craze in those heady days of colonial greed and the luminaries of European science were hell bent on trying to define the human being as racial types by photographing and measuring the native populations. Extensive use of anthropometry – the exacting measuring of the human body – was used at the time to correlate physical with racial and psychological traits thus attempting to identify the various origins or racial types of mankind. Today we know that this fallacy had no bearing.
    Schreiber, like so many of his generation of North American children, was an avid reader of National Geographic Magazine and other photographic publications that offered views of a world unknown to most - other then from the engraved plates of early travel and geography books. At the time most photographs were still published in B/W and the stark dark bodies of the "natives" against the pure white backdrop made for dramatic images capable of firing up the imagination of a youth dreaming of adventure.

    When I first saw Schreiber's self-portraits I too was taken back to my childhood dreams of wandering the world, encounters with wild animals and "strange" civilizations. I also felt immediately at ease with his images. They are a contemporary version of the 19th century ones and there is a definite sense of self derision which, in its self is comforting and yet compels you to wonder why Schreiber put himself into these images and strangely - why do they ring a bell deep in the subconscious…

    These self-portraits – never really intended for public viewing - are exhibited here for the first time. Along side the photographs I will offer a selection of fine and early Oceanic Art works - exhibited as a punctuation and reminder amongst Schreiber's self-portraits - showing the ancestral representations that the indigenous people of the Pacific Islands produced to bear witness to their belief in the powers of their forefathers.
