Collagiste aux doigts de fée
The Verbeke Foundation and the Fondation Andrée et Pierry Arty have the pleasure to organize the very first retrospective exhibition of Andrée Arty's work in Kemzeke. As a singer, piano player and poet, Andrée Arty (1923-2009) created an unseen feminine surrealism by incorporating the musicality and originality of her most intimate feelings in her collages and drawings.
The exhibition provides the opportunity to edit the first monograph of this multifaceted and interesting Belgian collagist. The book of 240 pages is the result of the inventory and study of almost 900 collages and drawings of Andrée Arty. The Verbeke Foundation was able to accomplish this work thanks to the generous support of the Fondation Andrée et Pierre Arty.
The exhibition also counts numerous works by artists with whom Andrée Arty participated to the collage collective Coll'Art from 1971 to 1973: Marcel-Louis Baugniet, Walter Beckers, Emile Bergen, Lou Bertot, Max Bucaille, André de Rache, Carlos de Radzitsky, Jo Delahaut, Paul Dufrane, Marc. Eemans, Jean-Jacques Gailliard, Robert Geenens, Jane Graverol, Irène Hamerlinck, Henri Heerbant, Paul Joostens, Jiri Kolar, Jean-Marie Legrand, Roger Londot, Kurt Lewy, Lilli Lewy, E.L.T. Mesens, Jean Milo, Henri Schaekels, Bernard Villers.
