Catalogue Note

"Viewing one of Bury's constructions demands that one see and feel peripherally. The eyes, the ears and the sense of kinesthesis are not directly engaged, though one becomes aware of the meaning of the activity almost as an after-effect" (Jack Burnham ‘Beyond Modern Sculpture, New York, 1968’, cited in: Dore Ashton, Pol Bury, Paris 1970, p. 18).
