From animist iconography, to representations of human and other animal forms, Timorese culture has manifested, and been represented, through the hands of wood carvers throughout Timor.
The wood sculptors at Arte Moris are not cultural artisans in the historical sense. They are fine artists who follow the traditions of modern art. However, since the inception of Arte Moris, the artists have often endeavoured to express their cultural identities through their modern art practices.
This exhibition – ‘Carving Through Time’ – is a wonderful example of that. These contemporary sculptures not only invoke ancestors of the past, they also envision ideas of the future.
The exhibition will be showcased at Oceanview until the 24th of November. Oceanview is here.
