Biculturalisme et revendications culturelles et identitaires : ce que révèlent les pratiques artistiques contemporaines des femmes māori‪

Abstract : Few anthropologists have been interested in the contemporary art of the Māori of New Zealand, and even less in the works produced by Māori women artists. However, these artworks, as well as the practices of the artists and accompanying discourses, deserve to be considered from an ethnological point of view. In this issue, contemporary Māori women’s creations are examined with particular attention to techniques and materials, which reveal the multiplicity of the sources from which the artists draw to generate artworks with various influences, and yet presented under the “Māori art” label. Māori women’s artistic productions and discourses also reflect the peculiarity of their status and identity positioning that can be understood through the theory of intersectionality: gender discriminations interact with racial discriminations, among other factors, to produce singular experiences different from Māori male artists’ experiences. In this paper, the works and life trajectories of four Māori women artists – Tracey Tawhiao, Hera Johns, Vicky Thomas and Deborah Duncan – will be presented by focusing on a double “bricolage”: one regarding the reconfiguration of materials, practices and patterns coming from different social worlds to create original artworks, and one related to gender identities.
