Antal Kelle Artformer

Helix, interactive object for meditation, 2005

There were many Hungarians among the leading figures of the Bauhaus – a movement that emphasised the importance of elemental forms such as the circle, square, triangle and their three-dimensional versions – the most outstanding being László Moholy-Nagy, one of the pioneers of kinetic constructions. His vision in motion, multiple perspectives and the synthesis of various branches of art is also markedly present in Antal Kelle’s oeuvre. Due to being reduced to abstract geometrical forms Kelle’s mobile sculptures are akin to the Bauhaus approach to form. However, beyond this apparent simplicity lies an endless complexity that unfolds during play. These objects can be shaped through interaction with the recipients. They are sculptures with the potential of meditative cognizance since the experience of playing while being moved resembles that of meditation.
