29/03/2018 - Gaspar Noé prefaces an exhibition dedicated to Pierre Molinier at Gallerie Gaillard (Paris) :
Everyone during their life hold gods and angels above their head that come with them for a while or for a whole life.
There are relatives we've known, we've loved, monsters we've met, teachers who trained you, but there are also those, freer, whom work enlightened you by a visual, written or musical way.
Among the few angels with whom I'm happy to wake up every morning, there is Pierre Molinier.
After many years of waiting, after purchasing and consulting every existing books about him, a sacred day, the auction of his daughter's collection took place. Sacrilegious situation because this work as a whole was going to be divided instead of being exhibited in a Pierre Molinier museum in Bordeaux. Shame on Bordeaux's mayor and on the Ministry of Culture! Praise the lucky admirers of the wild magician who could get a hand on his rare works. At the end of the auction, in an irrational act, my finger raised before being stopped by my brain for lack of money. Floating on cloud nine, I could become the overexcited host of a picture I've always dreamed of.
The angel that was in my mind materialized in my hands. This picture would be adopted for life, a short life. Objects have a life. They're living. I know it. Molinier too. And probably more than I do. That's why he was a fetishist. And in the finest meaning. His pictures have a unique soul. As the stocking, booties, masks, the stool and the screen he was so obsessed by. He was so at ease with his habits and obsessions that they become exceptionnally transmittable and universal. Putting a mask, dressing up, dissociating from every formatted sexual identity, multiplying his legs endlessly, exercising to be able to suck himself, making photomontages to manage to sodomise himself, feeding his kitten greedy of milk with his own sperm, talk about it and show it openly to everyone... More surrealist in his life than every surrealists he could have mixed with and who were afraid of him despite his ultimate affability. His happiness was maybe desperate for some, for others whom I'm part of, he is the expression of an exemplary life force.
For him, existence or non-existence, identity and society are illusions. Only sexual drive exists and doesn't need to stiffen up with any filter because it is unique and all-mighty.
It's one of the rare examples I know of a man so joyful that he succeeded in making his suicide look like a playful act, by announcing the date as an appointment with himself, with life, death, birth, enjoyment. All-in-one. And then the pictures.

"In the mid 90's, about twenty urban dancers joined together for a 3-day rehearsal in a closed down boarding school located at the heart of a forest, to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl.
Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it's soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rythm of the music... While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell."
