Musée Jacquemart-André
The man and its masks

Musée Jacquemart-André : Until 28 août 2005.

masques jacquemart andre

More than 60 masks coming from the collection Barber-Mueller of Geneva are exhibited in the temporary rooms of prestigious Musée Jacquemart-Andre, boulevard Haussmann.  The majority of these masks are presented for the first time at the public. By their diversity, they translate the cultural feeling of the folklores of the world.  Africa, Oceania, Europe, America always masked their people and tribes for occasions as varied as from the funerary ceremonies among the Chinese, Iranian or javanais as for tibetan dramas or Japanese women. Art tribal dresses the expressions with the spirit of god, the phantasms, the incarnations or quite simply physical protection.  A wolf out of leather and iron of the First World War answers the helmet barricaded of a goal of hockey.  The grostesque one of a mimicry makes fun of a scary smile of Sri Lanka.  The novelist and poet Michel Butor illustrates this exhibition with several personalized texts, revealing a human perception of these petrified faces which speak to us like as many mirrors engraved in unconscient.  The report at time and death is permanent.  The masked man is an uncovered man.
