The artistic traditions of tribal cultures and regions.
Pace Primitive

"By accident or through use, each has been transformed from a craftsman's interpretation of an image, following a traditional iconography, to a unique trace of the past. They are parts of a story whose incompleteness embodies the distance between the modern viewer and the art and the impossibility of ever knowing them as they once were. That said, the gaps and lacunae leave space for the viewer's imagination and raise questions that give us all the more reason to look and to dream."
