Martine SCHEERER - Portraits of Papus at the Goroka Festival

Calendar Exhibition from 31/08/2020 to 25/09/2020, at the gallery in the Palais de l'Europe, space A

Martine Scheerer was born in Strasbourg in February 1968.

Passionate about travel and photography since my adolescence, it is through the Indian continent that my desire to discover other cultures and other emotions was revealed.

After having travelled through several dozen countries; from Asia, to North Africa, to sub-Saharan Africa, via South America, it is during an exhibition at the Musée du quai Branly in Paris, which brought together objects and a glimpse of the culture of the peoples of the Sepik Valley of Papua New Guinea that the desire to meet the people of this mysterious country with millennial traditions was born...

Festival of Goroka:

The Goroka Festival is the oldest event celebrated in Papua New Guinea.

Each year, it is organised the second weekend of September to commemorate the country's independence.

Considered as the largest tribal assembly in the world, it takes place every year in the mountainous region of the country, in the city of Goroka in Oceania.
This great moment of sharing, an orgy of noises, songs, feather trimmings and bark, brings together a wide variety of ethnic groups from the mountains and from the coast.

It is an explosion of colour and emotion, the most famous annual event in Papua New Guinea!

«If many countries and peoples have fascinated me, and especially those on the African continent, my trip in Papua New Guinea has particularly captivated me.

That is why I chose to share the portraits of those I had the chance to meet»
