yesterday there was an opening of a new exhibition at danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Čunovo near Bratislava: works of the Hungarian sculptor & painter Zoltán Kemény (1907 Banica – 1965 Zurich) & his wife Madelaine Kemény-Szemere (1906 Budapest – 1993 Zurich). excuse me I just refer to Zoltan Kemeny´s work I was fascinated in its contrasts. & there was an artbook-presentation about the Slovakian sculptor Jozef Jankovič at the same time, too much for a short late evening date.

update: about Madeleine Kemény-Szemere see new post: une promenade avec Madeleine!

Eva Trojanová writes in the accompanying folder to the exhibition: “Kemeny gave the title Métallo-magie (1963) to one of the reliefs exhibited in his collection at the Venice Biennale in 1664. It precisely captures the essence of his relation to his own work: his obsession with work in metal and its recreation into `live pictures´(tableaux vivants). Kemény reached the peak of his artistic creation through his admirable determination which enabled him to overcome the difficulties of immigration and the trauma of war. Initially he was concerned in painting. However, it did not produce much response…”

the following paintings are dated between the years 1943 & 1947, the sculptures & reliefs Zoltán Kemény has created since the year 1953 – could there be a broader gap in expression? :

instead of “gap” a synonymous poetic expression now:  “jour et nuit”

nach einem guten essen & arbeitsgespräch in Bratislava war Ich heute mit dem slowakischen bildhauer Milan Lukáč ins Danubiana, das Meulenstein Art Museum, zu einer vernissage seines kollegen Viťo Bojňanský geladen. das museum liegt etwas ausserhalb südlich der stadt, auf einer insel in der Donau am staukraftwerk Čunovo & war nach meinem besuch des Lentos in Linz an der Donau letzte woche ein augenfälliges gegenstück nicht nur von architektur, sondern auch von der umgebung her: umspült vom donauwasser stehen hier skulpturen von europäischen bildhauern auf den kies- & rasenflächen vor dem schiffartigen bau des museums:
