curated by Sabine Schaschl and Evelyne Bucher
In cooperation with the artist and the Museum of Concrete Art in Ingolstadt, Museum Haus Konstruktiv has put together a comprehensive retrospective solo show. With around 80 valuable pieces from museum collections and private collections alike, this exhibition spans a multifaceted range, from Vera Molnar’s early freehand drawings that have never been exhibited before, to her late-1960s plotter drawings, through to a new installation that was specially conceived for Museum Haus Konstruktiv.
The exhibition’s title “(Un)Ordnung. (Dés)Ordre.”, meaning (Dis)Order, refers to the artist’s creative practice and raises issues regarding the relationship between order and disorder with respect to her concise visual language. The solo show “(Un)Ordnung. (Dés)Ordre” at Museum Haus Konstruktiv is not arranged chronologically, but according to various themes, covering the range that spans from her early works, through to her very latest. Molnar repeatedly refers back to pre-existing works and recharges them with new ideas. This exhibition reflects the central themes that Molnar has now spent decades addressing; these consist of the circle and square as elementary forms, as well as the line, and variations on certain letters.
Alongside drawings, collages, computer drawings, photographs and paintings, we present “on se promène?” for the first time, which was originally a work on paper from 1988, and is now realized as an installational wall piece. With “on se promène?”, Vera Molnar once again shows us that at 91 years of age, she can still deal with site-specific circumstances in an innovative fashion.
