Indian Contemporary Art Contemporary, One Word, Several Worlds by Hervé Perdriolle preface Jean-Hubert Martin
5 Continents Editions Hardcover 248 pages dimensions 0.8x9.4x11.2 inches




"The Indian tribal art is emerging on the international stage" In India, the place of indigenous is no longer to the Museum of Man, in those reconstructions where the wax mannequins, dressed in traditional costumes, sit around the fire in front of their traditional houses. Here they are now to meet Indian contemporary art scene, with works that are sold in art galleries and museums around the world. The voice of Indian tribal people, long suppressed, is reborn through the painting. Le Monde February 17, 2011

Hervé Perdriolle has gathered since 1996 more than 400 drawings and paintings of Vernacular Contemporary Art in India, where he lived from 1996 to 1999. Some of the artists collected, as Jivya Soma Mashe and Jangarh Singh Shyam, were exhibited at the Magiciens de la terre (Centre Pompidou Paris 1989). Most of the artists gathered by Hervé Perdriolle art part of the Bharat Bhavan collection, a cultural complex designed by the architect Charles Correa in 1982 in Bhopal. It is Jagdish Swaminathan, the great modern painter and Indian thinker, who initiated this exemplary collection, the first to put on a same level contemporary artists from global culture and local culture.

The Indians call Contemporary Art from local culture, mainly from tribal origin, Vernacular Contemporary Art. "Vernacular in the Contemporary" is the title of the two-part exhibition organized by the Devi Art Foundation (New Delhi 2010 - 2011). Vernacular Contemporary Art, as Art Brut or Outsider Art, are becoming more and more visible on the international art world, including the Venice Biennale and the Hayward Gallery in London in 2013. Indian artists represented by Hervé Perdriolle since 1996 belong to this history in motion.

From roots to wings. Hervé Perdriolle has been regularly collaborating with Abhay Maskara since 2011. Maskara Gallery, founded in 2006 in Mumbai, is one of the most attractive place to discover the new scene of Indian Contemporary art. Maskara and Perdriolle galleries take part together in India Art Fair. They showcase side by side emerging art scene and tribal art. The exhibition (M)other India at the Galerie du Jour/Agnès B. (Paris 2011) illustrates the desire to make local culture and global culture enter into dialogue.
