Jorge Molder — L’échelle de Mohs
L’échelle de Mohs
Past: October 24 → December 8, 2012
Jorge Molder’s artwork is deeply connected with philosophy and literature. From these, his work draws a peculiar taste for the dark side of the mind, for the “frightening unknown ” and for a subtle meteorology of ambiguities. Molder, indeed, is particularly interested in the metaphysical aspects that enter the everyday life of each human being. The artist amplifies this issue through the perception of his own image, and, not without irony, he seems to view himself as a stranger. Going beyond self-representation or introspection, Molder uses his own image , as well as all his metaphorical images, to attempt a reflection on time and being into the world.
Jorge Molder was born in Lisbon in 1947. Many exhibitions have been dedicated to this artist in Portugal and abroad: the 22nd Biennale of Sao Paulo (1994), the 48th Biennale of Venice — Portuguese Pavilion (1999), the South London Gallery (1999), the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris (1999), The Jeu de Paume in Paris (2002), Das Schwarze Quadrat in Hamburger Kunsthalle (2007), the Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian Lisbon and Paris 2009, Chiado 8 Lisbon 2010.
