Biographical history

Pierre Heyvaert was born in Belgium in 1934. He came to Québec in 1957. He represented Canada at the 1965 Forma Viva International Sculpture Symposium in Kostanjevica (in what is now called Slovenia) and was among the artist invited to participate in 1966 International Sculpture Symposium in Québec City. The following year, he created a sculpture for Expo 67 entitled Acier, a piece which appeared to rest upon the surface of the water surrounding the Quebec Pavillion. Heyvaert work in wood and metal to roam abstract geometric sculptures, some of which are referred to as " espace triangulaires". His pieces have been exhibited both in Canada and abroad, notably a the Galerie Cheval de Verre (Brussels, 1964), the Calgary Allied Arts Council (1968) the Musée du Québec (1969) the Deson-Zaks Gallery (Chicago, 1969) and the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal (1970).
