Martin Zet ranks amongst local solitaire artists who can only rarely be found in Czech galleries but who are regularly invited to exhibitions, projects and symposia organized by many progressive institutions abroad. Zet is involved in numerous artistic media. His works usually overlap the given discipline and their effect on both the society and the artist himself can be long-lasting. Some of his works – whether, for example, the drawings employing the “medium” of sea, videos, or the self-scrutinizing hunger strike – are developed on a long-term basis. Living in the solitude of a small village in the Kladno region and travelling on the most modest basis provide Martin Zet the capability of clear vision and thinking, imbued with the ironical dose of reflection and self-reflection alike. The artist’s happenings and performances have often been documented in merely an amateur way and many of his actions are more or less inaccessible to viewers. His videos do not bring aesthetic relief but instead provoke a civilized attentiveness, alarming viewers’ conscience and traumas. Sculptures by Martin Zet from the recent period are cast of lead and represent a series of fantastic gallery artifacts that map out our everyday lives. The versatility and the exceptional weirdness of Zet’s works, however, still wait to be discovered by Czech audience.
