17 – 23 Maggio 2019: Medina Roma accoglie la mostra personale dell’artista francese Valérie Honnart

Sisifo Felice mostra personale di Valerie Honnart a cura di Lucia Collarile, dal 17 al 23 Maggio 2019 negli spazi Medina Roma, a cura di Palma Costabile e di Michele Nibaldi. Valérie – artista francese – ha viaggiato a lungo ed ha vissuto a Hong Kong e Roma. In questa personale ci presenta la sua reinterpretazione del mito di Sisifo in chiave contemporanea e con ispirazione alla cultura orientale.

In sinergia e con la promozione dell’INSTITUT FRANÇAIS – CENTRE SAINT-LOUIS

Val 0

Cosa dire di Valérie Honnart? è una bellissima donna francese, con il fascino specifico delle native del Scorpione con il fuoco del cavallo, il suo segno cinese. Più seriamente, ho incontrato Valérie molti anni fa a Roma, quando eravamo appena arrivati da mondi totalmente diversi, lei dalla cosmopolita Hong Kong ed io più vicino, da Parigi. Mi ha subito colpito la sua sensibilità differente, la sua maniera tutta felina di osservare il mondo senza mai svelare il fondo del suo pensiero ma lasciando l’interlocutore nel desiderio perpetuo di saperne di più…

Val 2

Dopo numerose mostre all’estero, Valérie torna a Roma con un tema molto particolare: il mito di Sisifo, che, secondo lei, diventa felice quando incontra la Cina. Lasciamo la parola alla curatrice della mostra, Lucia Collarile, che ci accompagna con le sue parole profonde ed oniriche per portarci nell’universo eurasiano della nostra artista.

Valerie 170519

“Il mito di Sisifo di Valerie Honnart: la trasposizione in Cina del mito classico, divenuto pensiero filosofico contemporaneo, applicato all’analisi di una società apparentemente così distante dalla genesi di quello stesso pensiero.”

Val 4

“L’immagine, la rappresentazione di quel mito parla invece la lingua dell’oriente, ed è presentata da Valerie con tecniche artistiche rigorose e, solitamente, nel pieno rispetto della tradizione pittorica cinese.”

Val 6

“La pietra è la materia, la forma e la sostanza, intorno alla quale gira tutto il pensiero di Valerie riguardo al suo mito, quella che lei chiama “la via della creazione”: la pietra nostalgia della natura e dell’armonia che l’uomo aveva con essa; la pietra corpo, pelle e carne pietrificata; in un antropomorfismo che ne rivela i segni lasciati dal tempo e dalla vita; la pietra immobile che l’uomo trascina quotidianamente, con uno sforzo titanico, verso una vetta irraggiungibile; la pietra che rotola spinta da forze sovrumane, per tornare da dove era partita, dall’inizio.”

Val 5

“Sisifo e le pietre divengono il mezzo per raccontare visivamente la nuova Cina, il suo “comunismo capitalista”; e l’insensatezza della condizione cinese moderna, specchio dell’assurda condizione dell’uomo moderno in generale ma se possibile anche più dolorosa che in altri paesi. Valerie ha vissuto la trasformazione della società cinese di questi ultimi anni; l’allontanamento dell’uomo dalla natura, la presenza di un inquinamento devastante.

Eccoli i nuovi Sisifo trascinare enormi pietre sulle loro biciclette ed eccoli ancora meditare di fronte alla pietra caduta; aspettare pazientemente lo svolgersi del destino ai piedi della montagna; osservare le tracce che le pietre rotolando lasciano sui diversi terreni dell’esistenza; caricarsi sulle spalle il peso enorme di quella pietra, fondersi con essa in un contatto che si trasforma in abbraccio. Perché l’aspetto folle e per certi versi salvifico di questa metafora; è che Sisifo ama la sua pietra e lo dimostra sorridendo, nell’accettazione consapevole della sua condizione umana quotidiana.”

VAl 1

“Nella mitologia cinese esiste un personaggio simile a Sisifo…

…è Yugong Yishan, un vecchio folle impegnato da solo nell’impossibile ostinato lavoro di creare con le sue mani un varco tra due montagne. Il vecchio è premiato dagli dei colpiti dalla sua caparbietà che, per lui, creeranno quel varco. Una sfida impossibile vinta con un lavoro piccolo e costante, nel qui e ora, senza coscienza di un futuro.”

Val 3

“La filosofia orientale è incentrata su questa sfida che è quella di vivere il presente con consapevolezza e amore, con cuore aperto; accorgendosi delle “piccole cose”. La sfida è di adattarsi sempre alla situazione presente; prendendo coscienza e consapevolezza del valore di ogni singolo momento della vita. Una vita che può avere luogo solo nel momento presente.

Un idea per noi occidentali più difficile da comprendere; poiché senza futuro noi perdiamo il concetto di redenzione verso una esistenza migliore e tutto sembra assurdo e inutile; resta solo la certezza della morte.

Quindi, ecco la sfida di Sisifo come ci spiega Camus nel suo libro: il lavoro, il castigo, la pietra; è un movimento che nell’eternità della ripetizione, prolunga il tempo di un’esistenza altrimenti assurda perché segnata dall’inevitabile morte. Ogni volta Sisifo ci crede nel suo lavoro e ogni volta Sisifo; seppur consapevole dell’assurdo della sua condizione; ricomincia da capo. Ecco che Sisifo, come ogni uomo, ha uno scopo: sfidare il suo destino, nel quotidiano, coraggiosamente. E paradossalmente sorride (come il Sisifo cinese). Per questo Camus termina il suo saggio scrivendo che “bisogna immaginare Sisifo felice”.

Valerie Ravi 170519 1bis

“Valerie vince la sfida perché la sua pietra, quella che porta sulle spalle, le permette di essere creativa. La sua pietra traccia le linee della sua arte. Valerie ama la sua pietra. Valerie è felice lungo la sua via della creazione.

Il messaggio per noi è chiaro: non è l’assoluta ricerca del successo proiettata nel futuro a coincidere con la ricerca della felicità; non è il progresso l’assoluta felicità e non è nemmeno la continua ricerca di quella felicità a renderci felici; anzi è solo la conferma di una trappola invisibile, di un’esistenza assurda.

Nessuno potrà levarci dalle spalle la nostra pietra, che è la realtà; la natura, l’affetto; la fatica di vivere. Nessuno ci libererà da lei se non la morte ed è perciò che essa stessa è la nostra salvezza: il nostro scopo di vita.

Per questo Sisifo ama la sua pietra; per questo Sisifo è felice.

Lucia Collarile, Aprile 2019″

59363779_10158504173965299_927133948574695424_n

My sincere gratitude for the kindness of Master towards me, his smile and affection always delicately expressed through courtesy and noble gestures.

59413425_10156979299168617_9080657927240417280_n

His FengShui Art leaves you breathless by the power of its message and the climax happened when Master got on stage to whip gold and silver from the giant painting to achieve in front of us the fulfilment of divine perfection.

59906333_2294578807230545_9079410037377466368_o

For all of that, Dear Master, please accept my deepest gratitude and affection in response to your friendship and consideration.

59523192_10158502055170299_8672292337952489472_n

His Royal Highness Prince Sisowath Tesso is the son of His Royal Highness Prince Sisowath Essaro, brother of Prince Sisowath Sirik Matak and of Her Royal Highness Princess Norodom Wathanary, first cousin of my father. Prince Tesso and I shared many happy and cheerful moments in our youth in Paris. We have in common a deep passion for beauty and especially for our venerated Royal Ballet.

All my best wishes for a bright future to my beloved cousin who will always have a special place in my heart.

Master Yun Long Zi’s opening speech, Amersfoort, 3rd May 2019

“The Classical Chinese use a few terms to describe “art”.

We use “Fa “法 to describe standards and canonization of art. We use “yi” 艺 to describe the beauty and aesthetic of art. We use “Su” 术to describe the skills and methodology of art.

But when art reaches its highest level, we call it “Tao “. 道

What does Tao mean? Literally it means the path, the road or the way.

To where? For the Chinese, it is to the heaven. Which means to the universe, to higher being, to paradise, to higher intelligence, to truth, to great wisdom..

When art reaches its highest level, it brings inspiration from heaven. When the human soul is in touch with that inspiration from the above, the paradise comes to the humanity. And together, it brings all the different forms of goodness from heaven such as prosperity, happiness, energy, fantastic health, excellent relationships and opportunity.

Feng Shui is a kind of Tao , art is a kind of Tao, and Feng Shui art is a kind of Tao. When it is divinely inspired, and it attains the highest level of reaching up to heaven and allowing paradise to reach us.

When I visited the Angkor Wat, one of the greats wonders of the world, I discovered that it is built very closely to the principle and idea of Feng Shui.

When I was given the honor to watch the Apsara Dance, I was amazed that it is also a kind of Tao.

59770379_10158502343395299_8408900217235046400_o

In the past The Apsara Dance could only be summoned by the king. And when it is performed, it would please the Gods so much that the blessings from heaven will descend upon the human world.

I am very honored to know His Royal Highness Prince Tesso Sisowath of Cambodia as a very close friend. His Royal Highness has graciously agreed to bring the Apsara dancers to perform the Apsara dance during the opening of my Art Exhibition here today.

The Netherlands is not a new and foreign land to me. More than thirteen years ago, a Dutch man from the Netherlands flew to Singapore.

He has heard about this Feng Shui Master from their friends and he came to consult me. When he flew back to the Netherlands the things I predicted to him came true and he invited me to fly here to Feng Shui his restaurant and his house.

He have also introduced to me more than a hundred clients in this country. In these thirteen years, he has grown from one restaurant to two restaurants and one hotel with three restaurants inside.

He has also bought and moved in to a huge and beautiful house.

And he is also into the wine business. This Dutch man is non other than Mr Cornelius Van Hamersveld, the owner of Van Hamersveld wine.

Such is the man when he acts according to the calling and inspiration of the Tao. He is blessed by heaven.

As a believer of Feng Shui, he came up with an idea of the putting my painting onto his new red wine cuvée call “Feng”. “Feng” as in Feng Shui.

With the launch of my Art Exhibition, is the launch of the new wine by Van Hamersveld wine “feng- win”.

Royalties and dignitaries, nobles and entrepreneurs, friends old and young, ladies and gentleman… thank you for coming to witness this historical moment.

May you be in touched with the Tao and receive from it many many blessings of prosperity, happiness, health and elegance!”

60003145_2294578333897259_8199073489819271168_o

My deepest gratitude to Lotus on Water Directeor, Mr. Kan Yin Loong for his energy and bright intelligence in smoothing any situation in a very diplomatic and sensitive way, to Mr. Charles Chen, perfect host and adorable in every way and our dear photographer form Singapore, Mr. Kazuka Kaka.

2nd March 2019: Sokhema Di Croce, a young and talented violinist, born in Cambodia, invited by Maestro Gianni Ferrini to perform at Ariadimusica Music Academy in Rome, Italy

In june 2018, at the final evening, I was granted the pleasure to meet with 16 year-old Cambodian violonist, Sokhema Di Croce, originally from Battambang and who was adopted by her Roman parents when she was only 11 months. I was blown blissfully away by the power of her interpretation and I really hoped to re-meet her very soon in Rome. Maestro Gianni Maria Ferrini already promised her to organise a concert at Ariadimusica, in which she would be able to show her great talents.

The day has finally come and on Saturday 2nd March 2019, Sokhema performed in front of more than 120 persons in the concert hall of Ariadimusica Music Academy, on the Casilina in Rome.

The young violinist chose a rather complex and not easy programme, from Lalo to Saint-Saëns, Mozart, Sarasate and Wieniawski… We were all taken by her absolute talent, her juvenile grace and the elegance of her eyes, that she lifted to the sky after each movement of the concerto or symphony she played…

She was accompanied at the piano by Maestro Edina Bak, from Hungary, remarkable for her sensitivity and subtle attention, always in rhythm with her young and beautiful partner.

While Sokhema was taking a breath before the second part of her concert, Maestro Gianni Ferrini invited his youngest pupil, Ms. Himari Sugiura from Japan to sit at the piano and perform Chopin, Galuppi & Mozart…

The performance of Himari was breathtaking : the public was litterally raptured by the fluent fingers of the little oriental girl and the applause was enthusiastic.

 

52935831_10158331398530299_3445756677083627520_n

Sokhema came back and we all fell in catharsis at the end of her sublime “bis” and the hands were clapping and clapping, giving the young and charming artist the fair reward and recognition due to her talent and hard work.
