The Ancient Art of Siberia
Time before time: Seeing with the sight of Siberian Shamanism
Welcome to « Time before time: Seeing with the sight of Siberian Shamanism », an immersive exhibition that takes you on a journey into the mystical realm of Siberian shamanistic art.
Cyclic, eternal, and recurring Time are the threads that weave through the fabric of this ancient tradition. Within its depths, faces emerge from faces, figures reside within figures, and the spirits of animals and forest are invoked. The wild and vibrant life forces of the animal kingdom become intertwined with the human, while anthropomorphic beings merge seamlessly with the enigmatic goddesses of nomadic solitude.
In the frozen solitudes of Siberia, an ancient magic thrives. It manifests itself in a mystical bestiary, where ancient values and primordial desires take form. These virgin spaces become a canvas for a wild ensemble of identities, bound together by a shared system of beliefs. It is an entanglement of interdependence, where Siberian Shamans emerge as custodians of knowledge and advocates of well-being, battling demons and summoning the spirits of healing.
Shamanistic art serves as a reflective mirror, capturing past dramas and preserving the relics of tradition and untamed nature, untouched by the rationality of scientific thought. Within its forms and expressions, we find a poignant reminder—a profound embodiment of our origins as Homo sapiens, as humans, and as a culture that has evolved from these ancient roots.
Join us as we delve into the enchanting world of Siberian shamanistic art, embracing its mystical essence and unravelling the profound wisdom it holds. « Time before time: Seeing with the sight of Siberian Shamanism » invites you to explore the intricate tapestry of ancient beliefs, connecting us to the very core of our shared human experience.
