Meeting the Yanomami with Claudia Andujar
As part of the exhibition, the Fondation Cartier has joined forces with the editorial team of Les Inrockuptibles to create and produce a series of original podcasts. In the form of personal interviews, journalist Ingrid Luquet-Gad invites you to meet the artist, Claudia Andujar.
Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle
Further enhancing the exhibition, the Fondation Cartier publishes a catalog presenting the artist’s photography, as well as excerpts from her notebooks. It also includes texts by Claudia Andujar, Thyago Nogueira—exhibition curator—and Bruce Albert, an anthropologist who spent time living with the Yanomami, as well as a map of Yanomami territory and a chronology that documents both the artist’s commitment to their cause and the history of one of the last tribes of the Amazon rainforest.

This is the tuning of the great animal orchestra, a revelation of the acoustic harmony of the wild, the planet’s deeply connected expression of natural sounds and rhythm. It is the baseline for what we hear in today’s remaining wild places, and it is likely that the origins of every piece of music we enjoy and word we speak come, at some point, from this collective voice. At one time there was no other acoustic inspiration.
