Description:
The present pendant of colorful drawings was made by the Ivorian artist Frédéric Bruly Bouabré. Many of his works were focused on themes such as ‘cultural identity’’’’ and its preservation. The artist was a tribesman of the Bété that were like many African tribes mainly based on orally transmitted cultures. Bouabré therefore had a very special relationship to scriptures. He actually considered it as the main reason for the powerful position of Europe in contrast to Africa. With his small-scale drawings he therefore intended to preserve small aspects of his daily life for later generations. The present works are beautiful examples of this artistic approach and reveal the typical characteristics: both were painted with ball pen and pencil and are fitted with a framing sentence in French. On the back side, the artist eventually set the date and his signature. Regarding the pictures in the center, it so becomes obvious that these works were deeply related to the tradition of pictograms. The works are in very good condition. They are respectively mounted with two adhesive tapes onto a strong cardboard. One work is titled along the edge ‘DEUX 09 SOUDÉS EN ART IMAGEANT UN BRACELET‘ and verso dated, inscribed and signed ‘DATE: 24-01-2011. SIGNATURE-AUTEUR: FBBouabe‘. The other piece is titled along the edge ‘LES SIGNES D’’’’UNE SCARIFICATION SUR UNE PORTE METALLIQUE’’’’ and verso dated, inscribed and signed ‘LES SIGNES D’’’’UNE SCARIFICATION SUR UNE PORTE METALLIQUE’’’’. The wooden frames are also in very good condition and both measure 23.5 x 19.5 cm. The size of each cardboard is 19 x 16 cm. Frédéric Bruly Bouabré (1921-2014) A native from the Ivory Coast, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré was a self-taught artist and active in poetry and painting. His early poems, stories and drawings were mainly focused on language and identity. Since a religious vision in 1948, Bouabré produced and continuously expanded a number of different work cycles, in which he tried to trace the world in its entirety. The artist was a tribesman of the Bété, who significantly depended on their orally preserved tradition. Bouabré therefore developed a syllabary, in order to document the language and culture of his people; the Africa explorer Théodore Monod (1902-2000) was the first who published it in 1958. Besides, Bouabré also created numerous small-scale drawings which remind of the art of pictograms. In Europe, the artist gains attention since the late 1980s; his works were, for instance, exhibited at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Biennale in Venice and the documenta in Kassel.
