The South Seas cultures will be represented by a set of Maori sculptures from New Zealand (including an exceptional Wahaika mace from the Hooper collection), the Marquesas Islands (Putaiana and Ha'akai ear ornaments, U'u chef's club). ), and Easter Island (Rapa Nui) with a rare male figure Moai Tangata from the Truth collection.
Finally, particular emphasis will be placed on the Bismarck Archipelago and Papua New Guinea with anthropomorphic sculptures and rare figures and ornaments for the Malagan ceremonies in New Ireland.
An original 8-volume edition of "Cook's Travels" (published in London from 1773) will also be presented as part of this exhibition.

Dans le cadre de la sixième édition de Paris Tribal, la galerie Charles-Wesley Hourdé prend le parti de présenter, au 31 rue de Seine, une exposition pluridisciplinaire, faisant dialoguer les arts d’Afrique anciens et contemporains. Ce millésime 2019 est en effet l’occasion pour la galerie CWH d’inaugurer la nouvelle branche de son activité, dédiée aux scènes africaines de l’art contemporain : 31 project. Créée en association avec Clémence Houdart, consultante et tête chercheuse en arts visuels, 31 project est une entité autonome de la galerie CWH, consacrée à la promotion des artistes d’Afrique et des diasporas.

En miroir de l’ensemble de masques africains, sélectionnés pour Paris Tribal 2019 par Charles- Wesley Hourdé, 31 project a le plaisir d’exposer le travail de la photographe malienne Fatoumata Diabate.

These Ntadi will be part of a set of funerary stones from the Boma region of Congo-Kinshasa.
It is a thematic exhibition on these rare and old items, which were designed during the lifetime of people with responsibilities within the group. They were represented according to their most advantageous character trait, or according to their quality as leaders of men or hunters.
When a chief was absent, the Ntadi was presented to the village during the entire absence because it was supposed to represent the chief and his protection.
When he died, after the ceremonies, the body was led into the forest in a place known to the initiates, the body was buried and the stone was placed on his grave. It was then forgotten.
That would explain why these objects are not easily found, because with time they sank in the ground or were broken by falling branches or animals...

For Paris Tribal 2019, the gallery will present the exhibition "da GIAVA a BALI".
The theme of the exhibition will focus on the influences of Indo-Javanese classical art on the Balinese animist tradition. The last Indo-Javanese dynasty, the Majapahit Kingdom, took refuge in Bali on the arrival of Islam in Indonesia in the sixteenth century, giving form with the local population to a religious and traditional syncretism.
Thus the art of court becomes a common art spread throughout the island of Bali, developing a rich cultural and spiritual life, both in the courts of the Rajas and in the streets, and generating a strong cohesion between different social classes and a pride of belonging within the island.
The Sacred and the profane form a whole of a great wealth of forms and manifestations.

On the occasion of Paris Tribal 2019, I will put in perspective pre-Columbian American objects and watercolors by the painter E. de Kermadec.
Particularly sensitive to the primitive arts, he had participated in the exhibition "Arts primitifs dans les ateliers d’artistes" in 1967 at the Musée de l'Homme.
This extraordinary artist, located on the borderline of the figurative and the abstract, made, before translating his emotions on a canvas, several watercolors of the different subjects that touched him. It was only after having transcribed all his feelings on these various watercolors that he made a synthesis on the canvas.
It is therefore about fifteen of these watercolors that I will stage next April for the edition of Paris Tribal 2019.
Pre-Columbian art fascinated E. de Kermadec. Being from the Caribbean islands, this art "awakened echoes in him", as he liked to say. Indeed, how not to be subjugated by 3,000 years of history and how not to be seduced by all the living testimonies of these missing Indians?
Invited by Anthony Meyer in his gallery 17 rue des Beaux-Arts, it is in this sanctuary full of Oceanian emotions that, from Peru to Mexico and with the eyes of the painter, I propose an initiatory trip during this Paris Tribal 2019.
