Since 1947, Vera Molnár has tirelessly drawn, painted, sculpted, programmed, photographed, conceptualized and spatialized an impressive number of works.
Initially thought of as laboratory research, her first works are elaborated in a constructivist state of mind, then enriched by knowledge on the psychology of form and the laws of vision, become interrogations, plastic questioning of optics.
Cybernetician then computer scientist, she sets up in the 60s a mode of production that she calls imaginary machine before being the first artist in France (1968) to use a computer linked to a plotter to produce digital drawings. Until the middle of the 90's, she will carry out a systematic exploration of formal families whose mutations she stages, privileging most often the resumption and the seriality as axes of development.
Finally, until today, a last creative phase in Vera Molnár's work paradoxically combines mastery and freedom, know-how and the quest for surprise.
For the first time in the history of the exhibition of the artist's works, the BA Gallery highlights and proposes a genealogy of a type of construction fundamental to Vera Molnár's entire career and underlying each of the above-mentioned plastic modes: collage.
