The Aesthetics of Love: Far Eastern Siberia


  • Musee du Quai Branly 37 Quai Branly Paris, IDF, 75007 France (map)

The exhibition will present the decorative art of the peoples of the Amur river basin; an art which embodies meaning and reveals the specific ontological construction of these peoples in their relationship with the visible and invisible world. The peoples presented – Nivkh, Nanai, the Ainu, Orotch and Hezhe (a Chinese minority) – founded their ways of life prior to the mid-20th century on the river Amur, which was their source of life and prosperity.
