Mária BartuszováBorn April 24 1936, Prague
Lived in Košice (1963)
Died December 22 1996, Košice
An important Slovak sculptor who did not gain recognition until after her death. (The Slovak National Gallery held a retrospective exhibition of her work in 2005 which has since been shown several times in Slovakia. In 2007 her works were exhibited at Documenta 12 in Kassel.) Despite the pressure of the period in which she lived, she created a remarkable collection of works with a special inner sensitivity. The examination of physical principles and the secret origin and end of life through the use of plaster became her distinctive testimony to the nature of the processes around us.
