ETEL ADNAN AND THE ARAB MODERNITY .

ETEL ADNAN THE UNDEFEATED SUN by Emmanuel Daydé.


Copyright Art Absolument - May 2014


Etel Adnan is considered today as one of the pioneers of Contemporary Arab Art. Following the Documenta 13 of Cassel and her Retrospective at the Mathaf of Qatar, the Claude Lemand gallery is showing the most recent works produced by the ‘Queen of the Lebanese sea’ now aged 89 years old.


Between sun and moon, between the fever of living and that of dying, the mountain keeps the balance. (Etel Adnan)


Etel Adnan’s painting, just like her poetry, come from the mountain to then dive into the sea. Being a concrete experience of both the past and the present simultaneously, her ‘alchemical laboratory’ comes from far, from very far. From the undefeated sun and from the sea that always starts again. From Lebanon, from Greece, from Paris and from America’s West coast. From the Mediterranean and from the Pacific. From the epicurean atomism, from Mahmoud Darwish’s sad lyricism and from Noam Chomsky’s naturalistic linguistics. From the icon, from the Persian miniature, from the Arabic calligraphy, from the carpet with geometric patterns, from the lyrical Abstraction, from Action-painting, from minimalist art and from the experimental cinema. Having travelled at the core of the core of all these countries, Etel Adnan remains an Arab nomadic globe-trotter who sings the intense love of our tragic world with an infinite number of ghazals. According to her friends, ‘people are satisfied if one miracle occurs in their lives, but Etel needs miracles to happen twice a day’. Celebrating the world’s beauty, her hedonistic paintings follow in their own way Gauguin’s prophetic ‘Talisman’, that Sérusier then passed on to the Nabis painters, the ‘prophets’.
