About the artist
Katalin Nádor (1938-2018) was known for decades as the photographer of the Janus Pannonius Museum in Pécs where she worked documenting artworks. Her name was also associated with the documentation of performances and exhibitions realized by the Pécs Workshop. The independent, experimental, lyrical abstract photographical work she had simultaneously developed in the course of the sixties and seventies did not receive any professional attention, albeit rooted in the visual heritage of György Kepes’ and László Moholy-Nagy’s visual investigations, and reflecting on the contemporary, new constructivist, geometric artistic endeavours of the Pécs art scene. Her photograms, graphical still-life analyses reveal a sensitive, singular artistic perspective that examines the aesthetic relation and reciprocity between nature and architecture, landscape and object through the lens of abstract photography.
