From March 25 to July 24, 2022, the City of Paris Museum of Modern Art invites you to discover an exhibition focusing on plastic artist Anita Molinero’s artistry, “Extrudia”. A retrospective made upon invitation of the museum for which she created a whole series of “anthropomorphic, totemic silhouettes” as well as incandescent landscapes.
Mixing industrial and natural materials, these silhouettes are about a “dismantled urban environments and the tensions it induces”. These silhouettes, Anita Molinero has been creating them for thirty years thanks to containers, bins, boxes, toys or car front beams with for sole tools a blowtorch and a pressure washer, enabling to stop “the heat’s action”, creating “bubbles and swellings, gaps and laces, crystallization and ‘caramelization’ effects”.
A control of the molten material demanding “precise gesture and focus”, recalling “some traditional practices of the ‘fire arts’”. The exhibition title refers to the meaning that is “to shape a material such as metal or plastic by forcing it through a die – and to one of her favorite materials: extruded polystyrene”.
This is the occasion to discover an all-rounder artist, then. Shall we go, friends?
