Zet is a visual and performance artist. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague between 1979 and 1985. Lives in Libušín near Kladno and works at the Faculty of Visual Art at the Technical University in Brno as the head of the Video Department. Zet began his career as a classical sculptor, and moved later to incorporate a full range of media, including video, drawing, found objects, writing, performance and photography. He is one of the most outstanding and prolific artists from Eastern Europe. His work is founded on the possibilities of mutual interchange between the nearby and faraway, the known and the unknown, the spoken and the unspoken, the concrete and the abstract.
