Art of the Bismarck Archipelago (N° 19501)

This book reveals the artistic production of the vast group of islands of the Bismarck Archipelago, a region of the South Seas located in the volcanic fire belt of Western Melanesia, divided into four main geographical and cultural areas: New Ireland, New Britain, the Admiralty Islands and the Western Islands. It is an art made of natural materials such as plant fiber, light woods, bark fabric and tree heart. This fragility associated with the use of bright colors has largely inspired German expressionism and surrealism. Art of the Bismarck Archipelago is divided into three main parts: a first essay on Bart Van Bussel's most recent photographic explorations of cultural traditions and traditional dance in New Ireland and New England today; a second on the historical period of exchange and interaction of German colonialism; and a third on the art history of the region and the cultural interpretations of the works illustrated. The pieces reproduced, beautifully photographed by Hughes Dubois, all come from renowned private collections in the Benelux.
