Martin Zet: Liberating the Printed Matter

Czech sculptor, performance artist and creator of short experimental films Martin Zet takes part in the Bangor Poetry Season at North Wales International Poetry Festival. A series of performances and screenings runs throughout the first week of October 2014.

Martin Zet's participation:

Libusin Journey to the Graveyard,  featuring Martin Zet
1 October 2014, 7.30pm
Blue Sky Café, Ambassador Hall, Rear of 236 High Street, Bangor LL57 1PA
In 2004 the Czech artist and poet Martin Zet began counting the number of his footsteps between the place of his birth in Prague and the family grave in the small village of Libušín. His intriguing account of this journey inspired sound artist Alan Holmes to make recordings in Libušín that will form the basis of a unique collaboration with Zet on the tenth anniversary of the walk. Introduced by Zoë Skoulding, this night of film, text and sound will explore noise and silence, what we pay attention to and what we don’t.
No tickets but donations welcome: pay what you can afford and think it’s worth.
