New-Ireland ART

Mysteries of New-Ireland at the museum of Quai Branly, from 3 April to 8 July 2007

 

PARIS - To begin with, not everyone can place it on the map. Where is New Ireland anyway ? This ong and thin island is located to the East of Papua New Guinea, in the archipelago of Bismarck, behind New-Britain. 

Nouvelle-Irlande ---> Click to buy the official catalogue

All these exotic names are represented for us in masks, masculine figurines, costumes, headresses made out of shells and elytrons of coleopterous insects. The video installations try to make us better understand the cult of the ancestors, as well as the more or less strange practices (Malagan rituals, Tubuan secret society ) . 

Set up in the garden gallery, this exhibition is the result of a collaboration with foreingn institutions, the Saint Louis Museum and the ethnographic Museum of Berlin. 

Out of the 138 objects presented, many come from Germany for one simple reason, Papua New Guinea was one of its colonies from 1870 to 1914.

The catalogue is a must read and will become a reference for all those loving New-Ireland art.

You will see many very big and impressive pieces in this exhibition
