Meloe Gennai, Temps, intempérie, tempérament, Éditions des Sables, 2017

Meloe Gennai est poète et écrivain. Né à Genève en 1986, il est diplômé en germanistique et histoire et titulaire d'un Master en droit de l'Université de Genève. Ce juriste est actif dans la scène Poetry Slam depuis 2008. Il s'est produit en Suisse romande et en Suisse alémanique, ainsi qu'en France, Belgique, Autriche, Allemagne.
Meloe est lauréat des Biennales Robert Goffin de la poésie ( Belgique, 2012 ).

La poésie de Meloe Gennai est puissante, parfois violente, souvent désabusée, mais dont l'humour est le fil rouge. Elle joue avec les ambivalences, les sons, les répétitions, les jeux des mots : "aaah que nous serons heureux que nous serons heureux dans ce temps de pause dans ce temps de rien dans ce temps sans temps sans rien ".

Guy de Cointet, A Few Drawings, cneai, 2005

Fac-similé du recueil de poésie graphique autoédité par Guy de Cointet en 1975, publié suite à l'exposition « Guy de Cointet / Allen Ruppersberg – A Few Drawings / Mixed Media » à la Galerie Air de Paris en 2006.

Guy de Cointet (né en 1934 à Paris, décédé en 1983 à Los Angeles) est considéré comme l'une des figures clé du mouvement de l'art conceptuel et de l'art de la performance qui ont émergé à Los Angeles dans les années 1970. Son influence sur la scène californienne actuelle est attestée par des artistes tels que Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelley, Allen Ruppersberg ou John Baldessari. La codification, le hiéroglyphe, la typographie représentent chez Cointet, dont l'œuvre est fortement marquée par un intérêt pour les procédés de langage et notamment les techniques d'écriture de Raymond Roussel, un processus d'élaboration du mot mis en image, et de la couleur mise en forme. Ses dessins et livres attestent de son goût du mystère, des langages codés et de la cryptographie. Proche du théâtre et de la poésie sonore et visuelle (ses narrations non linéaires, ses « objets scéniques », véritables « tableaux parlants », et ses croisements entre théâtre, cinéma et danse auront des échos jusque dans les recherches actuelles d'artistes comme Catherine Sullivan), Cointet est l'auteur d'une synthèse entre culture populaire, sources littéraires, surréalisme et art minimal.

Evelyn Taocheng Wang, Unintended Experience: a job in Amsterdam, After 8 Books, 2017

She had a lot of siblings she told me, so she wouldn’t get any pretty clothes until she had a likely match—but since she didn’t have anything pretty to wear, she couldn’t get a match. She was trapped in a vicious circle, doomed to spend her blooming years in wistful longing: no young woman, no matter how clever, could break her way out of a dress like that.

The book is composed of a collection of diary entries previously published by the artist on her Facebook page, relating to her aesthetic, intellectual and sentimental experiences as an undercover transgender masseuse in an Asian parlour in Amsterdam. A series of watercolours accompanies the texts. Inaccuracies of language are an integral part of the narrative.

Henri Chopin, Les Mirages des 27 / Visioni dei 27 Segni, Edizioni Morra, 1995

Henri Chopin (18 June 1922 – 3 January 2008) was a French avant-garde poet and musician: he is widely considered to be a pioneer in the recognition and distribution of sound-poetry. Besides poetry and music, his practice includes paining, graphic design, typography, independant publishing and filmmaking; Chopin's work is a barometer of the shifts in European media between the 1950s and the 1970s. 

In 1964 he created OU, one of the most notable reviews of the second half of the 20th century, and he ran it until 1974. OU's contributors included William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Gil J Wolman, François Dufrêne, Bernard Heidsieck, John Furnival, Tom Phillips, and the Austrian sculptor, writer and Dada pioneer Raoul Hausmann. 

Chopin spent a lot of time in Naples from the beginning of the 1980s due to his collaborative projects with Peppe Morra, founder of Fondazione Morra, one of the most renowned spaces for contemporary art active within the city. Morra and Chopin worked closely together up until the final years of the French artist’s life. During this time they produced numerous publications, a large number of which were based on his stunning production of “typewriter poems”. Chopin found a new possibility for poetry both within sound and the written form; with a formal approach he constructed a new alphabetical narration that actually had no responsibility for communication.
His personal production — consisting of typewriter-poems and sound performances — is an inspired attempt to open the medium of poetry into a form described by Chopin as ‘a poetry of spaces’: demonstrating ‘the sensory superiority of sound as opposed to normal speech, and [...] free man from the straightjacket of words and letters and from his obedience to didactics.’

This book contains a text by Stelio Maria Martini.

(Colette Thomas) René, The Testament of the dead Daughter, Vauxhall&Company, 2014

Colette Thomas, one of Antonin Artaud’s “daughters of the heart” flashed briefly before an unsuspecting Parisian literary world after the war... then vanished. The book she published in 1954, under the pseudonym René, comprised letters to Antonin Artaud, accounts of her own early incarceration and suffering, along with tales wrenched from her tortured being. Despite some attention and knowledge of her book there has been no new French edition of Le Testament de la Fille morte.

Henri Michaux, Connaissance par les gouffres, Gallimard, 1967

Les drogues nous ennuient avec leur paradis.
Qu'elles nous donnent plutôt un peu de savoir.
Nous ne sommes pas un siècle à paradis.

“Toute drogue modifie vos appuis. L'appui que vous preniez sur vos sens, l'appui que vos sens prenaient sur le monde, l'appui que vous preniez sur votre impression générale d'être. Ils cèdent. Une vaste redistribution de la sensibilité se fait, qui rend tout bizarre, une complexe, continuelle redistribution de la sensibilité. Vous sentez moins ici, et davantage là. Où "ici" ? Où "là" ? Dans des dizaines d'"ici", dans des dizaines de "là", que vous ne connaissiez pas, que vous ne reconnaissez pas. Zones obscures qui étaient claires. Zones légères qui étaient lourdes. Ce n'est plus à vous que vous aboutissez, et la réalité, les objets même, perdant leur masse et leur raideur, cessent d'opposer une résistance sérieuse à l'omniprésente mobilité transformatrice.“

Richard Kostelanetz, Wordworks: Poems Selected and New, BOA Editions, Ltd., 1993

In 1967, when critic Kostelanetz (A Dictionary of the Avant Garde) began publishing his own visual poetry, he was one of the most accessible practitioners of the form. A poem composed of the single word "lollypop" travels vertically down the page, the first O huge so the whole looks like a lollipop. A five-page tribute to Henry Ford is composed entirely of the letters A and T. Later work pulls apart words and places them back together, as in "relationship," the central I and O forming the knot of a bowtie-like shape formed by the other letters. Short, conversational prefaces to each of this book's 15 sections help pave the way for uninitiated readers (though as the work becomes more difficult to appreciate on the page, his introductions become more technical and complex). These commentaries threaten to overshadow the poems, yet add to the collection's value. Gathering poems previously presented in limited editions, this volume displays the full spectrum of Kostelanetz's writings.

Eugen Gomringer, constellations et poèmes concrets, Éditions Héros-Limite, 2005

Les konstellationen sont conçues comme «le plus simple modèle visuel de la poésie verbale» reposant sur la simplification toujours plus radicale de la langue. Gomringer aspire ainsi à un langage réduit à l’essentiel, où sont abolis les caractères nationaux et superflus. Le langage évolue alors vers un schématisme fonctionnel, vers une poésie universelle instantanément lisible.
«Les konstellationen tendent à devenir objectives, c’est-à-dire à ne plus être les véhicules de contenus moraux ou philosophiques, ni l’expression d’un moi social qui se demande “Qui suis-je ?”, mais la libération d’une énergie, le faire-part d’une information esthétique, l’objectivation d’une langue.»
Aspirant à influencer, par le «nouveau poème», les structures linguistiques, Gomringer trouve dans le mouvement De Stijl, le Bauhaus et la peinture concrète de Max Bill, les points de référence obligés de ses théories.
