Installation, Hungary, 1974-1991

Vera Molnar was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1924 and has been living in France since 1947.  Her art work has made a major contribution to the birth of kinetic and generative art. And since 1968 she has become one of those pioneers using the computer in art work. « Geometric art can effectively produce a variety of mystical creations, which art history knows much about, but it can also move in completely the opposite direction to that of true science. The pictorial medium chosen can be easily manipulated, it can be encouraged to produce highly controlled experiments and thus transform the enlightened artist into a researcher into art. Not being particularly interested in the mystical side, yet curious by nature, I decided to challenge this medium and deliberately chose the second option. » Vera Molnar.
