Barewaldt, Wayne

Plug-In Editions, Winnipeg/Smart Ass Press, Santa Monica. First edition, hardcover w/dj, 10 1/4 x 8 1/5 in. 120 pages. Fine as new.

When renegade Surrealist Pierre Molinier committed suicide in 1976, he left behind an extensive collection of dark and subversive photographs of astoundingly sensual intensity. Using himself as a model, Molinier blended transvestism and fetish, exhibiting himself with a narcissism tinged with irony. This book follows the large, luminous flow of his work as it twists the androgynous myth into a troubling and magical parody of camp and masculine desires. It features an extensive collection of his formative collages and montage photographs and provides long-overdue critical attention to an artist whose work is both beautiful and profoundly shocking. Essays by Wayne Baerwaldt, Peter Gorsen, and Scott Watson. Texts in English and French.
