Mariy Rosen is a poet, songwriter and theater director. His work is characterized by a specific way of interrogating forms and conventions.

Mariy has directed theater performances in private homes, abandoned pizza parlours and hypermarkets, among others.

A selection of his poetry has been published on ceramics in a collaboration with Studio Art.E in 2015.

Crumbs for a Dead Bird, Mariy’s latest selection of poetry, was first published in digital form in the spring of 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic. Designer is Alexandra Georgieva, and redactor Lucy Slayanska.

In the exhibition Crumbs for a Dead Bird, we show this collection as a series of images.
