When Even Fish Go Sentimental: a loose evening of poetry, film and music

23 June 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

(Finix cafe, Hasselt, Belgium)

The year 2018 started for cineaste Marina Kazakova with a book about a prominent British painter “Gluck: Her Biography” by Diana Souhami. Inspired by the biography, Marina jumped into a journey to experience the artist’s works face-to-face. She travelled to Hampstead (London), Brighton and Steyning (West Sussex) where Gluck spent important periods of her life. Later the film-essay got made under the name “Gluck: At First Glance”, with Martin Pel (a co-curator of the exhibition ‘Gluck: Art and Identity’) sharing curious details about Gluck’s art works.

The evening will kick off with a brief poetry reading by Marina Kazakova. Then the film-essay (27 min) will be screened. After that, a Paris-based band ‘Opium Dream Estate’ will perform their beautiful music: a combination of various music genres such as gothic folk, indie rock, ambient, blues.

About the Artists

Marina Kazakova is a Belgian-based poet, cineaste, and journalist. She is currently at work on her art-based PHD research on “lyric film-poem’ at LUCA School of Art (KU Leuven), and has recently produced a film-essay “Gluck: At First Glance” about a prominent modern British painter Gluck (1895 – 1978) who was a truly unique artist, one that never belonged to any movement or school of painting but has largely escaped the attention of art scholars and the general public.
