Molly Roth’s labor-intensive installations consist of thousands of individual pieces, often in the form of bows, secured to walls and floors. Most recently her installations have been text-based, spelling out words and phrases in large, cursive lettering in a minimal and formal presentation. Regarding her choice of words the artist states, “I am interested in revealing the transparency of language and indulging in emotional fantasies, as well as addressing the post-modern depressed subject as a new cultural paradigm. The bows are used to mask an inherently embarrassing or heavy-handed statement in order to make it more presentable, decorative, and benign.” Inspired by a Robert Wilson play of the same name, A Story About Some People Changing is an abstract narrative addressing the fear of death.
Molly Roth received her Master of Fine Arts from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2007 and her Bachelors Degree from Portland State University in 2004. Her work has been in numerous national and international exhibitions, including SAD: A Northern View of Darkness at the Weisman Art Museum, and My Strawberry Roan: New Art from America at the Finnish Academy of Fine Art in Helsinki.
