The work of Kata Legrady stands out for four fundamental traits. Let’s list them. Her creative praxis is determined, to a great extent, by her unconscious; then, the work has a playful dimension; she uses, in an utterly personal way, the “readymade” in the Duchampian sense of the term; finally, she observes the world with a gaze that has conserved the innocence, curiosity and inventiveness of childhood. Arturo Schwarz A prestigious catalogue following the first solo exhibition of the artist in Italy at Fondazione Mudima. Kata Legrady’s approach to art takes the form of a symbolic encounter between objects associated with childhood with those associated with violence. In her work, weapons can be transformed from devices of death to works of art. Arturo Schwarz is a scholar, art historian, poet, writer, lecturer, art consultant and curator of international art exhibitions.
