Jorge Molder, Untitled (from the series 'Tangram'), 2004/08. Coll. Fundação de Serralves — Museu de Arte Contemporânea, Porto. Acquisitioned in 2010.
Exhibition Opening: 26 November at 4pm
Shown at Museu de Vila Velha, Vila Real, this exhibition brings together works by Jorge Molder (Lisbon, 1947) selected from a more extensive set in the Serralves Collection.
Molder is mostly known for his black and white photographs, in which the artist photographs himself (only the face, the full body or the hands) invariably wearing a dark suit and white shirt, but this idea is countered in his two most recent series. References from literature, film, music or art history, as well as from the everyday and life’s uncertain and unpredictable nature are crucial in his oeuvre as anchor points for drifting and constructing something. In this sense, this exhibition is complemented with bibliographic references that are significant to the artist, including some of his books and exhibition catalogues.
The exhibition, curated by Isabel Braga, is part of the Touring Exhibitions Programme of the Serralves Collection, which aims to make the Foundation’s collection accessible to different audiences across the country.
