AboutThe first major solo exhibition of celebrated French artist Jean-Luc Moulène will be at Modern Art Oxford from 29 September 2012.
Featuring a series of glass and bronze sculptures, drawings and photographs, the exhibition is structured as a ceremony or procession presenting several series of works from the last couple of decades.
From the 1990s to present, it will showcase the artist's ongoing commitment to the relationship between image and object and will feature his celebrated monochromes painted with conventional BIC ballpoint inks: red, green, blue and black, and his extraordinary sculptural knots made from glass and bronze.
Alongside the exhibition will be a new film, The Three Graces, especially commissioned by Modern Art Oxford. Referencing traditional art history, âThe Three Graces' originated in Greek Mythology and have been depicted countless times in Classical and Renaissance periods, in sculpture, drawing and painting; Moulène transposes the subject to reflect the era of mechanized reproduction, using black and white film as his medium.
