"A terra que te ofereço
II
Trago
para ti
em cada mão aberta,
os frutos mais recentes
deste outono
que te ofereço verde:
o mês mais farto dos óleos
e ternura avulsa.
e dou-te a mão 
para que possas
ver,
mais confiante,
a vastidão
sonora
de uma aurora
elaborada em espera
e refletida
na rápida torrente
que se mede em cor". Ruy Duarte de Carvalho

'Colour places you. Colour is your geography. Colour is your language. Colour is your everything, your low self-esteem, your power, your lack of power.' - by Mary Sibande in 'A Crescendo of Ecstasy'.The choice of the colour purple is a reference to the book and movie 'The Color Purple' written by Alice Walker but also to the 1986 protest in Cape Town where people were sprayed with purple dye so they could be easily arrested afterwards. Walking through the installation and experiencing the VR 'reality' it was like the 'purple woman' was connected to all the creatures in the space. A narrative of generations of black women who took care of the children while the men where send to work in the mines or on the farms. Seen at TMRW Gallery in Johannesburg.

Today my eyes were caught by the impressive painting of Mamela Nyamza made by Robyn Denny. Mamela Nyamza is an award-winning South-African performance artist and choreographer. The paintings are part of the video-installation 'Hatched2015' in which Mamela is the solo-dancer. It draws on her experiences as a black female ballet dancer living and working in an environment of profound social, economic and racial inequality. I got to know Robyn, Mamela and the curator Beathur  Mgoza Baker through the performance 'Passage to Healing', where the colour indigo, which, in cloth form (dye) was traded for slaves by the Dutch. Hopefully I will be able to show Passage to Healing in the Netherlands. Painting seen at Candice Bermann Gallery in Johannesburg.

My second visit at Wendimagegn Belete’s studio in Oslo. This work is brand new and I love it. A very interesting narrative as well as a brilliant composition. Definitely an artist to follow. @wendimagegn_belete #ethiopiancontemporaryart #africancontemporaryart #rådhusatelierene
Last night at the Private View of @omar_viktor's first UK solo exhibition; "Liberty/Diaspora" was deeply moving to say the least. 
Curated by, and held at @autographabp in collaboration with @galerie_magnin_a, Omar's stunning body of work reimagines and portrays leading figures from across the African diaspora who have fought for liberty and have lived truly inspirational lives. 
I cannot encourage you all enough to attend this exhibition at @autographabp showing now between 20 July - 3 November. 
Bravo, Sir! @omar_viktor •

This is post #1000 on African Art Stories. My passion for Contemporary African Art started in 2008 with the exhibition 'Snap Judgements - New Positions in Contemporary African Photography' in Amsterdam curated by Okwui Enwezor. In april 2015 I started with writing 1 post each day on Instagram with the idea to transform the gallery in my mind and on my bookshelves, into a Visual Storytelling space to share my personal experiences with the Contemporary Art of the African continent. With the support of 4400 followers I have created a platform for supporting the growth and visibility of African artists and their Art. Picture taken by Herman Verwey - Goethe Institute Johannesburg, with me in the background during the exhibition opening of Wolfgang Tillmans in the Johannesburg Art Gallery.

Take a breath, Slow down, Take your time.
--- "There’s no pressure to perform. Going back to Ansel Adams, he said a good year for him was making 12 photographs. I wonder if one of the reasons we don’t take a more mindful approach to our photography is because it would force us to go slower if we did. Consider this your permission to slow down. There’s no pressure. This isn’t a race, though you wouldn’t know it from looking at Instagram. Isn’t it better to make 12 photographs that we truly love, that truly do succeed, and do whatever it is we really want from our work, than to make 100 times that number, always wondering if they’re good?" words David Duchemin.

In these days of cheap and disposable, there is a pressure to constantly create subpar and keep our foot on the paddle. I am finding the need for mindfulness, to pause and not allow the pressure to stress me out. To take a breadth and assess what I am doing and chart where I am going. I am now half way through year and feel the need to press pause or I will loose the year.

Craft and Soul
--- "There is a village in China where thousands of painters make their living together, painting away their days in spartan studios, covered in paint, surrounded by canvases. The village is called Dafen, and it intrigues me because, for all the technical prowess possessed by the painters in that community, it is not known for its art. Not really. That is to say it’s not known for it’s own art.  It’s known for being the world’s largest source of counterfeits and copies of art. Want a Mona Lisa but don’t have the 500 million it might cost you? You can get one in Dafen for a handful of dollars, relatively speaking. And it’ll be a very good copy. But is it art, and was it made by an artist?" - David Duchemin
So art is obviously more than technique and imitation, it requires a soul in the midst. It is made up of you, your hands and the journey it's been on, your eyes, your interpretation, your intuition. 
We learn and master our craft but in the journey that is just the beginning of our story, we have to learn to unpack our souls and be vulnerable. That's the real essence of it. We have to pour ourselves all over the print or the canvas in a way that is raw, honest and naked. And that is hard, believe me I am trying. Dafen is obviously a good plan to learn but it won't make you the artist you are meant to be.

Advice from a Gallery owner
--- I would encourage younger artists to relax and make work and not worry about the fame and the fortune. A lot of artists are too aggressive; they don’t understand how to interact with someone without it being about them. Some photographers need to learn that when I ask, “Hi, how are you?” I’m not interested in a sales pitch. I can look at your work and tell you almost immediately if I’m interested or not.
Self promotion is tricky. When I walk around, I don’t tell every person I meet, “I’m Catherine Edelman and I have a gallery in Chicago and I’d love to show you the work I represent.” But that’s what a lot of artists end up doing, and they don’t understand how difficult that is for the people around them! You need to be respectful and follow up when you’re offered an opportunity.

I would say, being personable is half the battle. When I meet someone and enjoy having a conversation with them, that’s when I’ll take a moment to look up their work. Because for me, it all has to be there: you have to have a vision, the work has to be powerful, it has to have deep meaning, and I have to enjoy working with you. The people who are successful, they’re the full package. So work on becoming the full package.

Collaborations
--- This photograph, is a beautiful by-product is a beautiful collaborations. Whatever you see in my work is the hard work of talented individuals that I share a connection with even if it’s for a brief period in time. 
As much as photography is about light, emotion and shutter speeds, it’s also about very important non-photographic skills that make us a joy to work with; love, respect, curiousity, patience, kindness, and off course the ability to create moments of fun. 
So creating what I create is a beautiful process of collaboration and connection which I am thankful for in every respect. The people I have worked with enrich me and the work I create and I am thankful for the individuality that exists within you.

Looking at Patriarchy and it’s intersection with womanhood. --- Thank you to everyone who came down to the exhibition on Saturday, I appreciate you very much. The exhibition ‘Conversations + The Woman Code’ runs till this Friday 15th June at the Gallery of African Art @galleryofafricanart in Mayfair, 45 Albermarle street, London, W1S 4JL. ---
Why did I create the work? 
A few years ago I was moved by the story of one of my work colleagues from Somalia. She recounted how when she was 13 she had undergone the procedure of female genitalia mutilation. Her story was like a gut punch when I heard it and it led to project ‘Conversations’ which is on show at the exhibition. As a creator I feel it’s very important to listen to your heart and create something that you feel. 
It was harrowing that about 200 million women living today have  undergone these cultural institutionalised procedures. For me, my culture is beautiful but like any society it has to evolve. ---
The exhibition is free to enter and closes on the 15th June. ---
Also on display is The Woman Code where I transferred Adire symbols on the female form. Adire was once used as a symbolic resistance to patriarchal rule in Yoruba land.

Chris Soal his art practise, is initially concerned with materiality of objects which are available en mass and utilised on a daily basis by millions of people. Toothpicks and bottle tops for example are manufactured for a single utilitarian purpose and than thrown away. Our understanding of the value of those objects is certainly altered when you find them back in a piece of art. At least I always wonder or the artist has counted the beer bottle tops before he started to make the artwork. 'Stellar Core Remnant' was on view at the booth of Art Source South-Africa during the Turbine Art Fair in Johannesburg.

De acordo com Joseph Campbell, citado por Leal Flávia, 2013, "As máscaras africanas simbolizam a diversidade de manifestações culturais em muitos povos do continente. São usadas em rituais de iniciação ou passagem, cerimónias religiosas, funerais, entre outros eventos de vital importância para essas sociedades. Elas estão no epicentro da identificação dos povos com seus antepassados e suas tradições, possuindo significados que ultrapassam a fronteira do seu valor estético".

People shopping for second hand clothes in Kampala's busy market area. There is a lot of conversation around the second hand clothes industry in Africa. Some have found employment through it and some argue that it is a way to clothe their families in a affordable way. The flip side, others argue second hand clothes importation kills local manufacturing.

Je ne suis pas une Succube virtuel ou réel qui fait b**** au travers de simple "images" des gueux en chaleur.. . "

Être une femme noire et Artiste =P****n pour certains affamés énergétique. Croyez au Divin(e), ça changera le monde.🍃

"Um antropólogo propôs uma brincadeira para algumas crianças de uma tribo Africana. Colocou um cesto de frutas perto de uma árvore e falou que quem chegasse primeiro ficaria com elas.
Quando ele deu o sinal todas as crianças deram as mãos e correram juntas...

Johannesburg is an enormous vibrant city and everyday is a journey in understanding how this city works. Tonight the Uber driver and me could not find the entrance of the place where the talk was with William Kentridge, Sam Nhlengetwa and Nandipha Mntambo which is than a little upsetting and frustrating. During the day my mind is making extra hours in observing daily life. The difference between the inner city where people are trying to make a living by seperating and collecting waste in those big bags and the suburbs where everything happens behind wired walls and you hardly see anybody walking on the streets is tremendous. Daily life in Braamfontein just went on today while in another part of town Barack Obama was speaking.

Titre: RECADE TASSI HANGBÈ
Technique: MIXTE

L'histoire d'un royaume ne peut être abordé sans mentionner ces souverains. L'oeuvre #RECADE_TASSI_HANGBÈ est une oeuvre (Recade comtenporaine) réalisée en hommage à l'unique reine de la dynastie des rois du royaume du Dahomey (TASSI HANGBÈ 1708-1711). Une reine victime des réalités phallocratiques de son royaume dont les traces ont été occultées de l'histoire officielle.
Une histoire au travers d'une oeuvre qui permet d'interroger sur la situation des femmes en Afrique encore victime de marginalisation, violence sur le genre et toutes autres formes de discrimination. .

Une récade (ou makpo) est un sceptre royal de l'ancien royaume du Danhomey (actuel république du Bénin), en forme de crosse ou de hache décorée d'un motif symbolique royale.
