“The ICA supports radical art and culture.”
I am delighted to have been awarded an Artist Residency in Iceland in 2015. I am looking forward to spending 5 weeks in Iceland writing poems and creating poetryfilms in January and February 2015. My work will explore art, science and nature within the context of the Northern Lights, sulphuric volcanoes, boiling mud, and Europe’s most powerful waterfall.
PoetryFilm Blackboard was a participatory text/art project devised by Zata Kitowski. Participants were invited to write or draw on a blackboard using chalk. A photograph was taken of each person’s blackboard and a montage film was made showcasing all the blackboard contributions. PoetryFilm Blackboard was commissioned by the Southbank Centre as part of Poetry International and the Festival of Love on 18, 19, 20 July 2014 and took place at the Saison Poetry Library at the Royal Festival Hall.

A photograph of the “Blood Types” participatory art exhibit at The Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin. Visitors were invited to have their blood type tested (by having a finger pricked) and the test cards were displayed by blood type.
Here is a photograph of “Great meals I never had”, by David Sherry, taken in Cork.

I have been invited to read at The Poetry Café on Saturday 13 December. Publicity material for the event is below:
Platform 1 is a wonderfully eclectic night of poetry and spoken word at The Poetry Café, hosted by Ernie Burns and Amy Neilson Smith. This month’s event features:
Mishi – a devoted Stalwart Football fan, his work, often written in a real-life, working man’s rhyme is honest and hilariously self deprecating
Zata Kitowski – a jewel of antithesis, her collection Doppelgangers is published by Heaventree Press
James McKay – since graduating from Cambridge, his lyrical work and mastery of Victorian classics has stolen many a show
Elphara - a violinist whose music will pluck your heart strings
