INVESTING IN MUSIC INSTRUMENTS

A CONVERSATION WITH ØYSTEIN BIRKELAND, INITIATOR OF DEXTRA MUSICA

FROM 8 PM

oystein_birkeland.jpg

The basic idea was for the foundation to invest in stringed instruments and lend it out on a long term basis to Norwegian musicians. Based on the foundation's obligation to not only own the bank DnB, but also return value back to society in a philanthropic sense, the musicians are obliged to do a limited amount of musical work for free on an annual basis. This could be concerts, teaching children and young students or other musically related work benefiting society.

By doing this, the foundation is not only helping the the musician and the national musical environment, but also gives a significant support to what is to be described as a world heritage.

Dextra Musica was established in 2005 as a subsidiary of the foundation. I was their managing director until mid 2007, then their artistic director until mid 2010 and now their consultant together with the world renowned expert Peter Biddulph. First instrument was purchased in January 2006 and today the collection consists of more than 70  instruments and has invested somewhere around $ 40 mill

She has returned three times following her first trip there in 2013 and has since been working on The Mariwai Project, a broad-ranging and long-term artists’ project and cultural exchange

GUEST SPEAKER

Burgos has invited Professor Nicolas Garnier to contribute to the topic. Professor Garnier, Chargé de collections Océanie (Curator in charge of the Pacific Collections), Musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac, will present his research concerning cultural loss and how it is interpreted by modern day Papua New Guineans. He led a seven year long series of experiments on cultural repatriation conducted at the University of Papua New Guinea in collaboration with approximately 25 international museums.

THE MARIWAI PROJECT

The Mariwai Project has a number of diverse aims:
▪To encourage and assist the Kwoma in keeping their culture alive in a changing world.
▪To inspire museums to engage with and encourage the living cultures and communities represented in their collections and to bring a new audience and purpose to the museum collections.
▪To encourage a live dialogue with ethnographers, anthropologists, museum personnel, collectors and dealers and a new engagement with the region
▪To tell the story of the Kwoma Ceiling panels and the people that made them and in doing so to reveal a wider story about the value of myths and culture.
▪To provide artists materials and support for the new ceremonial house in Mariwai
To take artists and others (linguists, dancers, musicians, architects, scientific community, etc.) to Mariwai to engage with and be inspired by Kwoma culture and traditions. We currently have a discreet search and selection process in progress and have been working with the village to ensure a welcome and enable guests to have a deep and meaningful engagement with the community.
▪To give to the people of Mariwai the opportunity to study their own history and culture as it has been recorded, analyzed and presented by outsiders. We have presented them with copies of the available books on Kwoma art and history along with other relevant historical documents and photographs to form a small library.
▪To research historic museum collections and their relation to current practices in the region
▪To encourage and facilitate responsible cultural tourism in the region
▪To work with other agencies to provide support for healthcare, education and development in the region. 
▪To work with local communities and other organizations to ensure the continued awareness and preservation of the natural environment and ecosystem of the Sepik River.

Working together with a group of village women Shiva Lynn Burgos developed the Women’s Tapestry Initiative using embroidered tapestry as a means for artistic expression by stitching the wool onto a substrate vinyl mesh that has a commercial purpose as mosquito netting. Together Burgos and the group created a series of these tapestries which combine representational symbols, such as fish and birds, together with bilum-style motifs and contemporary designs to create a new art form in which women can participate fully.

The extraordinary ceremonies involved in initiating a spirit house were filmed using photography and video as well as both aerial drone technology and also the latest innovations in 360 degree filming. In collaboration with Sydney based Paper Moose Studio a rig of 10 cameras filmed at the same time all directions. The resulting film stitches these together to make an immersive experience which virtually teleports the sights and sounds of the Sepik River. As this is still a new platform we enjoy the position of being at the forefront of the technology and pushing the medium in several directions.  Our goal is to create a new way of seeing and experiencing the content by stretching the boundaries of both video art and documentary film.

Nyaba Ouedraogo est né en 1978au Burkina Faso.

Suivront d’autres séries telles que « Les casseurs de granite et de sable » au Burkina-Faso (2010 -2011), « Erreur humaine » (2011) qui sont empreintes d’une volonté de narration des multiples mutations des sociétés africaines. Ces séries consistent à ne pas montrer des images pour ce qu'elles racontent mais pour ce qu'elles traduisent.

Entre 2011 et 2013il s’éloigne de la forme documentaire et se met enquête d’une nouvelle poésie photographique. Il en ressort « The Phantoms of Congo River ». Une  recherche esthétique sur l’ambiguïté de la représentation de la réalité ou du réel. Cette série a fait l’objet de plusieurs expositions en France et dans le monde.

En 2014, il réalise « Les dévoreuses d’âmes », une série de diptyques confrontant des images documentaires et la mise en scèned'une représentation sociale se jouant des croyances mystiques.

Nyaba a reçu plusieurs prix dont celui de L’union Européenne aux 9ème Rencontres de la photographie de Bamako (2011). Il est également finaliste du prix Pictet 2010, et lauréat des Résidences Photoquai 2013.
