Juan Vicente Aliaga PIERRE MOLINIER 1999
Pierre Molinier, Valencia, 1999. Cloth. 268 pages, hardcover, no dj as issued, 8.5" by 5.5". Text in Spanish, with English translation. Lavishly printed book, with silk moire-covered boards with oval photo pastedowns, pearlescent endpapers, and over 80 plates of Molinier's macabre psychosexual photographs, as well as numerous textual illustrations showing publications, private photos, film stills, props and more. An elegant publication, out of print and scarce. Texts by Manuel Bonet, Juan Vincente Aliaga, Giulia Colaizzi and Pierre Molinier. NEW in publisher's shrinkwrap.

This is probably the most important exhibition that has been devoted to the French artist Pierre Molinier, and it aims to provide the keys to a world pervaded with sexuality and the championing of enjoyment. The exhibition presents about a hundred works (especially photographs and photomontages, the technique for which he is most famous, as well as paintings, drawings, prints, erotic objects, the short film Mes jambes, 1965, made by Molinier himself, and a sound recording), obtained from collections and art centres in Paris, Bordeaux and New York. Pierre Molinier’s poems, Les orphéons magiques, are published in Spanish for the first time in the catalogue, which also contains essays by Juan Vicente Aliaga and Giulia Colaizzi.
