Poetry and Music: I Think About Your Hands

Poetry and Music: I Think About Your Hands



As the 500th anniversary of Leonardo's death is commemorated this year, a Belgium-based artistic duo Marina Kazakova and Slow Bear prepared a poetry programme inspired by and devoted to the great artist and his gorgeous country. The hands drawn by da Vinci in his portrait paintings as well as his famous study of arms and hands probably represent the most exquisite visualisation of hands in the history of art. Marina will perform a selection of poems inspired by da Vinci's works, Italy and Russia, each poem accompanied by a unique guitar composition. The selected poems reflect the scope of human emotion, as well as relevant issues facing present-day world of Europe: hate crimes, migrants, discrimination, body commodification. Slow Bear will also perform songs from his own repertoire. All welcome. Marina Kazakova (b. Gorky, Russia, 1983) is a Belgium-based writer, poet and audio-visual artist. Published internationally in magazines and journals (Three Rooms Press " Maintenant" , " AntiNarrative Journal" , " Crannog" , " Duck Lake Books" , " Writing in a Woman's Voice" ), Marina is a frequent performer, she has been shortlisted at different poetry/ film-poetry competitions. She is author of verse novel “Tishe...Piano”, the film adaptation of which was shortlisted for International Short Film Festival Leuven 2013, Miami Indie Wise Festival 2018, XpoNorth Festival 2018, and got ’The Best Narrative Short’ Award at the International Film Festival behalf Savva Morozov in Moscow in 2015. Her literature works deal to a large degree with confrontation with the past and explore the challenges posed both by memory and grief. Marina holds a Master in Public Relations and in Transmedia. Currently, she is PR Officer at ‘Victim Support Europe’ (Brussels) and working on her practice-based PhD in Arts “Lyric Film-Poem. A research on how the unique characteristics of lyric poetry can be expressed in audio-visual medium” at Luca School of Arts (KULeuven). He is Slow Bear. With this music he hopes to make a better place of this world. Maybe, from time to time, it will make a difference for the good. When he became a solo artist in 2014, it proved one of the most liberating decisions he has ever made. He doesn’t know how he overcame the initial fright to start doing everything by himself, and he is very proud of the result, his debut album ‘Pale Morning Fades’. He plays on his own but that doesn’t necessarily mean he makes quiet or introspective music. He is a DIY artist. He feels that the original idea of DIY has faded with the generations, and we are now at a point where we can’t even imagine anymore what it used to stand for. Music that whirls up from underneath and from aside, puts itself outside the machinations of the market and values small scale, prompt expression, without mediation of publishers, accountants, A&R, influencers, government representatives or radio pluggers.
