Event Details

 “Le Temps de la Mue” was conceived with the image of the relationship between Dora Maar and Leonor Fini, a layering of different periods of their life, their times of friendship, intimate sharing and artistic exchange. “Le Temps de la Mue” is above all the title of a series of twenty texts and engravings by Leonor Fini, colored by the artist, published in 1975 by Galerie Bosquet in 230 signed copies. Both the drawings and the automatic avant-garde texts scribbled in her telephone diaries are totally abstract, and her incisive, sometimes funny, sometimes cynical writing reveals a gallery of colorful characters, Fini’s almost-monsters in full moult. In 1936, Fini wrote to André Pieyre de Mandiargues: Why are we so attracted to monsters? Between the strange, colorful beings and the artist’s store of costumes, an answer emerges:monsters, like disguises, metamorphose, mutate, change and transform. For the first time, Leonor’s molting creatures take over Dora’s house in Ménerbes, as if their natural presence revealed the creative power shared by the two women.
