BERNARD MATEMERA 1946-2002

Bernard Matemera was one of the most important sculptors of the First Generation of sculptures in Zimbabwe.

Matemera was the artistic and inspirational leader at Tengenenge. There was a deep and warm relationship with the owner and founder of Tengenenge Tom Blomefield.

Matemera was the son of a village headman, living near the town of Guruve, Mashonaland in the far north of what was, in 1946, Southern Rhodesia.

He spoke Zezuru, one of the Shona dialects, and had four years of formal primary schooling: like other boys, he herded cattle, made clay pots and carved wood. In 1963 Bernard was working as a contract tractor driver for tobacco farmers in Tengenenge and met Tom Blomefield, whose farm had extensive deposits of serpentine stone suitable for carving. By 1966, Blomefield wanted to diversify the use of his land and welcomed new sculptors onto it to form a community of working artists. This was in part because at that time there were international sanctions against Rhodesia’s white government led by Ian Smith, who had declared Unilateral Declaration of Independence in 1965, and tobacco was no longer able to generate sufficient income.

Matemara was one of the first artists to take up sculpting full-time, joining others including

Henry MunyaradziJosia Josia ManziFanizani AkudaSylvester Mubayi Manzi, Fanizani AkudaSylvester Mubayi and Lemon Moses who formed part of what is now called the First Generation of Zimbabwean sculptors in hard stones.

If we visited Tengenenge than there was always a special diner.

Bernard offered us a goose for diner that day and if we like to drink some beer or not, it was common to drink one!

MANZI  FAMILY

THE parents of Josiah came from Malawi to Zimbabwe in 1918. The father of Josiah was a builder on a tobacco farm and also a mask carver. He, Josiah, also became a mask carver. He made a start with sculpting in 1967. During the morning he would work on the farm and in the afternoon he would sculpt. In 1979, because of the war Tengenenge closed, Josiah Manzi was the only one who stayed with his family in Tengenenge. His wife Janet is also a  sculptress.  There were 7 children .

Two are world famous sculptors,Movetti Manzi and his younger brother Manzi Bakari. Josiah is a so called first generation artist.

Joke or no joke. In the mid nighteens Bakari, the sun of Josiah was very often invited to the Netherlands. Once it was not possible for him to cross the Dutch border.

Our invitation was for Mr. Bakari Manzi and in his passport was the name of “Manzi Bakari” so the Dutch did n’t like to let him in. After 2 houres of discussions and putting all our knowledges of Tengenenge at the table and arguing that Josiah, his father, changed the surname and the Christian name, Bakari was allowed to enter the Netherlands but we had to go to the police every 14 days during his stay in the Netherlands. Bakari Manzi died in the late nighteens too early for such a nice human and a very very good sculptor.
