ART OPENING: A solo exhibition of the career and unorthodox life of French Surrealist artist Pierre Molinier.

Pierre Moliner – the man and the painter, the genius and the pervert, the ‘lesbienne’ and the guns lover – is not an easy figure to pin down. Existing on the margins of conventional society, he lived a life defined by excess and hedonism. At the age of 50 he raised his ‘premature tomb’, reading on its cross: ‘Here lies Pierre Molinier – born on 13 April 1900 – died around 1950 – He was a man without morals – He didn’t give a f*** of glory and honour – Useless to pray for him.’
