Ch'ulel

Maya Tzeltal, he was born 13rd june 1969 in Ch'ixaltontik an isolated community at 2 hours walking from Tenejapa a small village of Chiapas (south of Mexico) where dirt truck's open in 2002 and electricity in 2006.

To defend himself from the insults he needed to learn the spanish languages so when he was 18 years old he went with his older brother to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco (north of Mexico) to work as unskilled labourer for a group of painters, called “Juntos". Afterwards he was assumed as painter and started to become more and more interested in Art.

He realised that Art does not need languages translation and it can be the best means to recover and promote his own Maya culture after he has personal felt social and racial discrimination to be considered indigenous and have a different skin, languages and food!

Have a look at his painting:
- serie Colours of the Region 1995-99
- serie Metamorfosis 2000 - 2003
- serie Metamorfosis Post Cubismo 2000 - 2004 and 2009
- serie Metamorfosis Colours of the Earth 1998 and 2002 - 2004
- serie Spirits 2002 - 2006
- serie Memoria contemporanea de lo Maya de Tenejapa 2005 - 2008
- serie 13 Loom-painting of spirits 2006 - 2009

- Exhibition: 13 LOOM-PAINTING OF SPIRITS for the projects "Bonbajel Turr BRASILE 2009"

- Murales
- Drawing
- Exhibitions, conferences and murales during the project "Bonbajel Turr Italia - Europa 5 novembre 2008 - 30 gennaio 2009"

 

Antún Kojtom took part in several activities realizing personal and collective exhibitions at national and international level. As example he realized murales in Tenejapa and San Cristobal de las Casas. Moreover he teached in some workshops in Date Vuelo in Guatemala, in The “Casa de la Cultura” of San Cristobal de las Casas and in the Zona Zoque in the Chiapas’s mountains.

In 2006 he was in Austria in the village of Sankt Leonhard am Hornerwald working in the “Projekt Künstlergärten”.
In the same year displayed his works “Wipil de Espiritus” in Wien in the “Das Literatur Atelier” and in Paris in the cultural association “Luise Michel”.
In 2007 he exposed twice in Chicago in the collective exhibition “Raices en la memoria” and in the National museum of Mexican Art.

Together with the Turrismo association has done the project "BONBAJEL TURR Italia e Europa, 5 novembre 2008 - 30 gennaio 2009" A tour of exhibitions of "13 loom/painting of Spirit", conferences and murales about "Recover Maya-Tzeltal memory throught the contemporary painting of Chiapas":

- 14 conferences (Cosenza, Messina, Cagliari, 2 in Siena, Colle Val d'Elsa, Milano, Cuneo, Savigliano, Torino, Feltre, Barcelona, Bologna and Paris)
- 2 murales (Milano e Torino).

 

Exhibition “Ox lajuneb sjalabil ch’ulelal” (13 LOOM-PAINTING OF SPIRITS)

Ch’ ulelal could be explained as “soul” or “spirit” according to the doctrine of the Tenejapa- Maya-tseltales ‘s cosmoperception.
“Ox lajuneb sjalabil ch’ulelal ” is the first step where we start to interpret the animal’s spirits which constitute the vision of the Mayan’s world.
Loom-painting and ch’ulelal (spirits) link 2 different knowledge. According to the Antun’s philosophy the loom-painting and the cloth represent a millenarian symbol of the Maya-tselatal women. The ch’ulelal represent another way to see things under different aspects. This vision is really close to the nature which is standing around us.
The investigation on Art become a process where traditions and thought compare and join between each others.
The thirteen loom where Antùn works on are manufactured by an association of women from his village “Tenejapa”. They know the size and how many strand should be needed for each loom, they choose the ste’el jalabil ( the structure of the frame) and the siban te’, a special wood which is used to build the structure.

Master Antún Kojtom is the first and the only one that is painting over a self made loom of the Maya women of Chiapas!
