biography


Betty Danon (Beki Aluf) was born in 1927 in Istanbul (TR). In 1956 she moved to Milan, where she obtained Italian nationality and changed her name to Betty Danon. She passed away in 2002 in Milan.
Her practice involves painting, collage, typewriting. Betty Danon worked with sound and sign, starting from Jungian symbology, reducing circle and square in their primal elements - dot and line - that she will develop in her future works: abstract musical scores and interventions on Sound and Sign.

She voluntarily left, in the 1980's, the conventional art circuits in order to share her work with artists from all over the world trough Mail Art.
