Interview, articles, biography and works.<br />...BK: It is unquestionable that my case is different from that of other Hungarian artists who worked in Western-Europe in the sixties, seventies and eighties. When I left this country I considered everything I was taking with me, and it has not been questioned at all. I think instead of a political determination I am now characterized by an awareness of the things that being Eastern or Middle-European involves. Having acknowledged that, it was less difficult for me to find my place in Western Europe, and it also helped me to look at the western part of Europe with a critical eye...

An exhibition under the title „Work in Progress” by Balázs Kicsiny, who lives in London since 1995, and produced in co-operation with the Janus Pannonius Museum of Pécs is on show at the Ludwig Museum Budapest - Museum of Contemporary Art from 24 October till the 1st of December 2002. The installation was inspired by the story of William Walker, the deepwater diver of Winchester Cathedral, who worked six hours a day for over five years from 1905 onwards on the reinforcement of the foundations of the building. Well below ground level, through water and darkness he struggled to save the abode of light, the Cathedral. ..

Balázs Kicsiny is represented in a wide range of public collections in Britain and Hungary, and also in the Albertina in Vienna, and has received awards in Hungary and in France (Special Jury Prize at the international sculpture exhibition in Voiron)...
