PIERRE MOLINIER

Pierre Molinier is a French artist born in Agen, who spent his career in Bordeaux. He began by painting landscapes, but his work turned towards a fetishistic eroticism early on. Molinier began to take photographs at the age of 18 and started his erotic production around 1950. He focused upon his own body as the armature for a constructive form that ultimately produced a large body of photographic work. Most of his photographs and photomontages are self-portraits of himself as a woman. He began a correspondence with André Breton and sent him photographs of his paintings. Later Breton integrated him into the Surrealist group. Breton organized an exhibition of Molinier's paintings in Paris, in January-February 1956. Pierre Molinier's enigmatic photographs influenced European and North American body artists in the early 1970s and continue to engage artists, critics, and collectors today. In the 1970's, Molinier's health began to decline. Like his father before him, Pierre Molinier committed suicide at 76 years of age by self-inflicted gunshot wound while masturbating.
