Pierre Moliner – the man and the painter, the genius and the pervert, the ‘lesbienne’ and the guns lover – is not an easy figure to pin down. He was a man without morals – He didn’t give a f*** of glory and honour – Useless to pray for him.’
This exhibition presents a selection of more than 50 of his groundbreaking photographs, drawings and paintings, dating from 1952 onwards. It was at this time that Molinier moved towards a more ‘magical’ style of art, a style that sought to bring to the surface unconscious desires and erotic drives.
Molinier’s fascination with the body and the erotic manifested itself through his carefully staged photographic portraits and self-portraits. Whilst his paintings and drawings depicted female characters in vertiginous, dark backgrounds, in his photographs he adopted a more joyful approach, reshaping his and his model’s appearances through doll’s masks, clothing, accessories, and S&M paraphernalia. Molinier’s creative process was both strict and experimental: he would mix colour pigments with his sperm.
Pierre Molinier’s life and art are inseparable and, in 1976, he committed suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot.
