Katalin Hetey at Art+Text Budapest: Memory of Movement

noir et blanc

Katalin Hetey (1924-2010) graphic designer, painter and

sculptor left Hungary in 1956. First she went Italy (where she

met Alberto Burri and Marino Marini) then she moved to France.

Her works were exhibited in Galerie Lambert, Paris and in the

Stedelijk Museum in Netherland. In the late 60's using cement,

marble powder and mixture of binders made white reliefs,

examining the theme of the material's self-molding and chaos.

From the seventies his intention was moving towards the clear

forms and made spatulas and mock-ups that can be realized in

monumental sizes. Its movable, variable steel plastics can be

found in countless museums and private collections.
