« O amor aos mercadorias » a floresta eviscerada pelos garimpeiros que priva as vidas dos povos indígenas de seu núcleo essencial !

« “São os brancos que ganham e acumulam mercadorias! O pensamento deles está tão apegado a ele que, se o danificarem enquanto ainda está brilhando, eles ficam tão furiosos que choram! Eles estão realmente apaixonados por isso!
Então, eles sonham com seu carro, sua casa, seu dinheiro e todos os seus outros bens – aqueles que já possuem e aqueles que desejam continuamente. É assim é. A mercadoria os deixa eufóricos e obscurece todo o resto em suas mentes.
Se os brancos pudessem ouvir outras palavras além de palavras-mercadoria, eles não iriam querer comer nossa floresta com tanta voracidade. »

– Porta-voz Yanomami e xamã Davi Kopenawa

About Barbara Crane Navarro - Rainforest Art Project

I'm a French artist living near Paris. From 1968 to 1973 I studied at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island, then at the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco, California, for my BFA. My work for many decades has been informed and inspired by time spent with indigenous communities. Various study trips devoted to the exploration of techniques and natural pigments took me originally to the Dogon of Mali, West Africa, and subsequently to Yanomami communities in Venezuela and Brazil. Over many years, during the winters, I studied the techniques of traditional Bogolan painting. Hand woven fabric is dyed with boiled bark from the Wolo tree or crushed leaves from other trees, then painted with mud from the Niger river which oxidizes in contact with the dye. Through the Dogon and the Yanomami, my interest in the multiplicity of techniques and supports for aesthetic expression influenced my artistic practice. The voyages to the Amazon Rainforest have informed several series of paintings created while living among the Yanomami. The support used is roughly woven canvas prepared with acrylic medium then textured with a mixture of sand from the river bank and lava. This supple canvas is then rolled and transported on expeditions into the forest. They are then painted using a mixture of acrylic colors and Achiote and Genipap, the vegetal pigments used by the Yanomami for their ritual body paintings and on practical and shamanic implements. My concern for the ongoing devastation of the Amazon Rainforest has inspired my films and installation projects. Since 2005, I've created a perfomance and film project - Fire Sculpture - to bring urgent attention to Rainforest issues. To protest against the continuing destruction, I've publicly set fire to my totemic sculptures. These burning sculptures symbolize the degradation of nature and the annihilation of indigenous cultures that depend on the forest for their survival.
