Avatar Zet takes place in an everyday setting. Its post-produced live-streamed version works with augmented reality, replacing performers‘ heads with fragments of Miloš Zet's most public sculptures. These include 'Youth’ (1963), ‘Night Crossing’ (1968) and ‘Klement Gottwald’ (1956) amongst others. This juncture enables Zet's pieces to gain a voice, create a living sculptural group on stage and to set a platform for discussion about the legacy of Zet's artworks.

Avatar Zet is a series of public performances developed as a preamble to ‘object duration’ public programme series co-produced by lítost, Prague and Trafó, Budapest. Avatar Zet has been kindly supported by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Prague, The Union for the Protection of Authorship GESTOR and Key promotion. The event is a cooperation between lítost, Lucie Drdova Gallery, both Prague and PLATO, Ostrava.
