Engaged Conference # 5

La voix des artistes contemporains autochtones 

 

Le 28 avril 2021 - Conférence live à retrouver sur notre page Facebook Survival International / Espace Frans Krajcberg

Pour cette cinquième conférence de notre cycle "Résistance : nature, art et peuples autochtones", nous avons le plaisir de recevoir les artistes autochtones Kássia Borges et Ibã Huni Kuin. Il nous parleront de leurs pratiques artistiques, et du rôle fondamental de l'art contemporain pour porter la voix de leurs communautés.

Sur les artistes et le collectif :

 Kássia Borges, du peuple karajá (iny) est artiste, commissaire et enseignante.
Ses recherches portent principalement sur l'origine, le féminin et l’ancestralité, dans les domaines de la céramique, photographie, dessin, installation, techniques mixtes, sculpture et vidéo.

Kassia Borges a une trajectoire internationale ; elle a vécu en Europe, où elle a été accueillie en résidence notamment en Allemagne et en France.
Son travail est le reflet de cette rencontre entre influences d'artistes occidentaux, comme Joseph Beuys, et transmission de la parole autochtone brésilienne.
Aujourd'hui, elle est professeure de tridimensionnel et de céramique à l'Université fédérale d'Uberlândia.
Parallèlement à sa trajectoire d'artiste personnelle, elle fait partie du collectif MAHKU et traduit en peinture les chants sacrés de son compagnon Ibã.

 

Isaías Sales (Ibã) est originaire du peuple huni kuin.
Conscient de l'importance de maintenir en vie les connaissances ancestrales et les rituels du peuple huni kuin, Ibã a créé en 2013 le MAHKU, le Mouvement des artistes huni kuin.
Le collectif MAHKU adopte le dessin et la peinture pour traduire visuellement les chants sacrés ancestraux de leur communauté. Leurs tableaux sont une représentation des visions produites lors des rituels de chant et d'ingestion du "nixi pae", ou ayahuasca.

Le collectif travaille avec le programme de recherches Espírito da Floresta, et le soutien du laboratoire Image et Son (LABI) et de la Licence autochtone, tous deux de l'UFC-Campus Floresta.
Le collectif a été exposé à la Fondation Cartier à Paris, au Musée d'Art Moderne de São Paulo, au MAM, au CCBB à Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasilia et Belo Horizonte, à l'Instituto Moreira Salles et à la Pinacoteca de São Paulo, entre autres.

Engaged Conference # 3

Indigenous peoples and nature: an inspiring example of environmental conservation 

  

March 3, 2021 - Live conference to be found on our Facebook page Survival International / Espace Frans Krajcberg 

  

For this third conference of the cycle, “Resistance, nature, art and indigenous peoples”, we are pleased to welcome Charles Hervé-Gruyer, from the Biological Farm of Bec-Hellouin and Fiore Longo, in charge of advocacy at Survival. 

​ 

As Jeremy Rifkin says, Western societies have not been able to evolve without destroying our environment unlike indigenous peoples who are today the only models of human societies respectful of the space in which they have lived for centuries. 

​ 

80% of biodiversity on Earth is found in indigenous territories. Charles was inspired by this expertise and knowledge, after having lived with indigenous peoples in America. He created his permaculture farm, La Ferme Biologique du Bec Hellouin, an oasis of biodiversity. The gardens and orchards are crossed by the Bec river, and visitors can discover 500 varieties of fruit trees, many vegetables, aromatic and medicinal plants, as well as animals. 

​ 

According to Charles, drawing inspiration from indigenous knowledge and practices is essential if we want to preserve our ecosystems. 

​ 

Yet, in the conservation industry, the opposite is often true. Guardians of nature are expelled and have their rights violated in the name of so-called “protection of nature”. 

  

Fiore Longo, in charge of the “Decolonize the protection of nature” campaign, will discuss green colonialism and why it is urgent for the planet and humanity to place indigenous peoples at the center of the ecological movement.

Artist Conference # 3

Conference “Lionel GUIBOUT and David DE COURCUFF in the test of fire” 

​Thursday September 10, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m

 

Lionel Guibout’s “Feux de tous bois” exhibition ends on Saturday September 12 at the Espace Frans Krajcberg, Center for Contemporary Art, Art & Nature after a summer full of events and meetings.

 

Before setting out on new adventures, the artist wanted us to meet the founder David de Gourcuff, from the ART FUSIONS foundry, with whom he made the “Words of bark” bronzes that you can discover in the exhibition.

 

Living in the heart of Auvergne, in the Combrailles (Puy de Dôme), David de Gourcuff has always been fascinated by Art foundry. 

Both of them invite you to discover the different stages that take place from the production of the mold, using the lost wax technique, to the patina. Multiple gestures, tools and decisive choices in the making of reliefs, materials and colors which proves that nothing would have been possible without a flawless dialogue between the artist and the founder. A unique moment to share while listening to the two recount the fusional links that have united them throughout this adventure.

 

A meeting close to “the bark”. 

At the end of the debate, the entire Espace Frans Krajcberg team is happy to invite you over for a drink celebrating friendship.

The oldest art museum in the city, founded in 1905 by the government of the State of São Paulo, organizes exhibitions of famous Brazilian art collections and temporary exhibitions, by national and international artists. 

 

For the first time, Pinacoteca has produced an exhibition dedicated to contemporary indigenous production and curated by indigenous researcher Naine Terena. “Véxoa: Nós sabemos” presents 23 indigenous artists / collectives from different regions of Brazil. 

Naine Terena, curator of the exhibition and the director general of the Pinacoteca, Jochen Volz will be there during the live.
