For more than twenty years, Jean-Luc Moulène has developed a complex body of work, both analytical and mysterious. Moulène’s works explore the question of representation in his chosen media, while at the same time drawing on their essential physicality and materiality to engage tirelessly with political, social and ontological issues ‘made flesh’—notably through the concept of ‘transaction’.
This monograph spans forty years of drawings and works on paper, offering an insight into a lesser-known part of Moulène’s artistic practice. A jubilant documentation rich with autobiographical elements.
