17 December 2023, 2–6pm

A unique showcase of the world of BURIED ZINE including interviews from the global metal underground, commissioned digital artworks and AUTOPSY, a virtual reality experience by TBG+S Studio Artist Tamsin Snow.

BURIED ZINE in association with the Dublin Art Book Fair presents a showcase of the unique world of BURIED ZINE. The event will be a rare opportunity for non-owners of the zine to see the digital artwork commissioned for the publication, including Tamsin Snow’s virtual reality experience AUTOPSY.

BURIED interviews musicians from the global metal underground, including Indonesia, Thailand, Russia, Turkey, and Columbia. The zine also features artwork or fiction from Tai
Shani, Harman Bains, Mark Riddick and many more contemporary artists.

This will be followed by a talk with BURIED ZINE editor Patrick Moran and artist Mark Garry. Click here to book the talk.

BURIED ZINE is a demoniacal, cosmic terror, an atrophying shambling mess of paralyzed organs evacuating putridity. Bound in hardback cases and laid out like a Victorian Grimoire, each publication explores heavy metal music and commissions fiction, photography, illustration, video art, and Virtual Reality experiences in their most bleak and morbid forms.

Tamsin Snow is a Dublin-based artist. She completed at BA in Fine Art - Studio Practice and Contemporary Critical Studies at Goldsmiths College, London in 2008 and received her MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London in 2012. Her practice derives from ongoing investigations into the legacies of modernist architecture.

Dublin Art Book Fair is Ireland’s leading art book fair and centre for artist books. Taking place in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios over ten days, DABF champions small, creative and independent publishers, both Irish and international and artist books.

This event takes place as part of Dublin Art Book Fair 2023: Polyphonic, sponsored by Henry J Lyons and supported by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature.
