“Perception in terms of movement is a life philosophy"

Gyorgy Kovasznai


"What felt very familiar in Kovasznai's work was the impetus, the essentialness and the emergency of making. That it felt like an emergency . . . There was kind of a collegial fury of creation that I got from him."

William Kentridge on Kovasznai
