Relations inter-ethniques et questions identitaires en Australie

Authenticity and Appropriation in the Australian Visual Contact Zone of Brenda L. Croft

Katherine E. Russo
p. 203-209


Dans la zone de contact australienne, l’art visuel est depuis longtemps présenté comme une possession coloniale et l’art contemporain indigène a souvent été étudié comme une appropriation, ou pire, un vol. Selon cette étude, la nature aliénable des technologies visuelles a largement été niée par le discours néocolonial parce qu’elle implique une relation avec d’autres utilisateurs. Reconnaître la légitimité et l’authenticité de l’art visuel indigène contemporain serait admettre la cohabitation et l’hybridité qui doivent être effacées pour que le mythe de la terra nullius puisse opérer (Goldie, 1989 : 148-169). Cet article entend démontrer que l’étude de l’art des photographies numériques de Brenda L. Croft révèle que les revendications néocoloniales concernant la possession des technologies visuelles contemporaines sont fondées sur le désir de créer une distance mythique entre les peuples australiens autochtones et allochtones. Ainsi, l’étude des pratiques artistiques indigènes peut élargir notre compréhension des relations Indigènes/non-Indigènes parce qu’elles agissent comme des pratiques de proximité qui brisent les revendications non indigènes de souveraineté et la négation de la cohabitation Indigène/non-Indigène.

1In the Australian Indigenous studies field, the debate on appropriation has often focussed on the issue of authenticity, ranging from an essentialist view of appropriation as a process of cultural contamination to the recent, often assimilative, celebration of a neutral, transparent, cross-cultural exchange, which is open to all. However, according to this study, the relation between authenticity and appropriation lies in the misuse of the term appropriation, which often maintains the assumption that Indigenous peoples appropriate technologies which are still regarded as colonial property. Yet, property, as Cheryl Harris explains, is always alienable (1993: 1731-1734). Colonial property rights over visual arts such as photography and digital photography are not natural but ideological. They are a myth, which the neo-colonial order has established and protected in order to create a social divide and reputation (Harris, 1993: 1724). As Cheryl Harris notes, selection based on property is the central feature of «reification»:

«Its basis is that a relation between people takes on the character of a thing and thus acquires a ‘phantom objectivity’, an autonomy that seems so strictly rational and all-embracing as to conceal every trace of its fundamental nature: the relation between people.» ery trace he cs --> wosentatheryl Harris0">proximble ">2he relaT thal, transparent, cross-culturalion or worse a stealart of Brenda L.
