Pol Bury

Time in Motion

ISBN: 9789462301764 (HB - E)

Pol Bury (1922-2005) was a Belgian painter, sculptor, jewellery designer, writer and graphic artist. He started out as a surrealist painter under the influence of René Magritte and Yves Tanguy, and later exhibited with the Jeune Peinture Belge group and the Cobra movement. Around 1953, however, Bury became fascinated by contemporary sculpture, inspired by Alexander Calder, and became one of the protagonists of kinetic art. Characteristic of his work is the extreme slowness of the often unpredictable movements that take place in his sculptures and objects. For the general public Bury is probably best known for his fountains and sculptures in public spaces. With his quirky and innovative work, Pol Bury conquered both the Parisian and New York art worlds, which at the time brought him international recognition. Now this handsome book gives us an opportunity to rediscover the multifaceted oeuvre of Bury - without doubt one of Belgium's most important post-war artists. Brussels, BOZAR, Paleis voor Schone Kunsten, 24 February -4 June 2017
