The name ‘Molly Pi’ is a pseudonym chosen as the truthful identity of the artist. It reflectsthe will to present the artist to the audience as a concept rather than a known physicalperson. Molly Pi was born in Switzerland in 1992. Her mixed heritage (English, German,West African, Italian), visible in her appearance, contributed to shaping both theperception that her environment had of her, and her future artistic interests. Selfexpressionthrough art was always a relevant aspect in Molly Pi’s life. As a quiet andrelatively reserved child, Molly Pi used creativity to challenge her emotions and developcreative gestures. This attitude pursued until her late teenager years until she was facedwith the decision: study art or not? Molly Pi chose to study Art History: she wished tolearn how to be on the other side, the side of the scholar and history scientist. Shelearned how history is constructed and how art is valued through time. Most importantly,she learned that art history is made of clear signs, and that artists communicate with oneanother, even across distant places and distant times. Molly Pi then pursued her studies with a Master degree in Art Anthropology; the discipline provided new scientific tools tounderstand how images are made, perceived, understood and cultivated within a context.It is during her University years that Molly Pi chose her pseudonym. The concept wasfitting because it embodied two important aspects: ‘Molly’ represents the ‘simple’ form ofthe name ‘Mary,’ strongly associated with the biblical figure but also very popular inEngland, where Molly Pi’s mother is from. ‘Pi’ stands for the number π, which for the artistprovides a rationalized concept of the infinite and the impossibility to catch into words orvisual signs the Cosmic dimension. The images created by Molly Pi see the woman, herfragility and her controversial identities as central subjects. Works as Lucretia; Eve andKnow Thyself depict well-known female archetypes through their distinct iconographicattributes. Works as Kiss of Judas and Pu**y is God question the notion of ‘innocence’ inbiblical narratives. Works as Woman Watching Over Sleeping Man and Hello Stranger(The Wounded Deer) explore the conflicting dynamics between the concepts of ‘female’and ‘male’. Works as Mimic, Mercury; Elisa Healing the Birds; Vitriol; The ChemicalSubject (Meeting Chaos); and The White Nightmare are visual representations ofalchemical concepts and ideas. The work Europe Beheading the Bull reverts the classicalnarrative of the submissive female role. Molly Pi approaches creativity with a deductiveapproach: moving from a feeling to a concept. This means that emotions are always thetrigger, and that the latter are revalued through the symbols and icons of art history.
