Véra Molnar - Une retrospective (1942-2012)
In biographical notes, Vera Molnar is often introduced with these few words: “An abstract geometric artist since 1948”. Her ascending line is thus obviously abstract geometrical art, and her artistic predecessors are Kandinsky, Malevitch, Mondrian, and Klee. Vera Molnar, along with François Morellet and Julije Knifer, is among the representatives of conceptual art today in France.
From very early on, Vera Molnar used the computer as a quick and efficient tool to serve her imagination and help develop her ideas. This practice has brought her to injecting 1% disorder into a system, so as to produce a displacement emphasizing contradictions and strength in her work: “art is a flaw in the system”, she often recalls.
The Rouen Museum of Fine Arts and the Centre of Contemporary Art of Saint-Pierre-de-Varengeville will show an extensive retrospective of her work from June to September 2012, covering 70 years of creative works by the artist (1942/2012).
