Sándor Pinczehelyi (b. 1946, Szigetvár) was a part of the Pécs Workshop art group in the early 70s. He creates analytical and conceptual works and land art projects. He uses the system of political and historical emblems, conceiving his artworks as a personal, socially determined individual mythology. Pinczehelyi's works often have the motifs of the star, hammer, sickle and granite cobblestone, as well as the Hungarian tricolour.
Sándor Pinczehelyi sends us his contribution to for the project from Erzsébet, where is now in voluntary isolation, waiting for the end of the pandemic, with high hopes for its soon ending. With that, he sends us the most crucial message with which this situation will pass quicker: STAY HOME!
Artists Respond project was started by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection. Addressing the current global pandemic, the project aims to virtually present the thoughts and attitudes of neo-avant-garde artists, their energy and the message they have for the present moment. This is the moment in which the world as we know it is on hold and the moment in which we need optimism and solidarity more than ever. We wish for the public to welcome the creative energy of these artists - artists who are ready to point out the state of things, to respond with art and creativity, as they have done in all difficult times in the past.
Sándor Pinczehelyi was a participant of our Artist on Vacation project in 2012 and 2019, organised by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection, with Valamar Riviera d.d. in whose facilities they reside in Poreč.
