Born in the region of La Louvière, Belgium, Pol Bury (1922-2005) spent his artistic career in France and the United States. Having participated in the historic exhibition "Le Mouvement" at the Galerie Denise René in Paris in 1955, he is considered one of the pioneers of kinetic art.
Pol Bury distinguishes himself from other artists -and friends- of kinetic art by using extremely slow movement as a means of expression. These almost imperceptible and random movements of the sculptures and reliefs confront us with our own relationship/experience of time. Only the interruption of an action or a movement allows us to become aware of the perception of time.
