Rrr reproduces typewritten pages written by conceptual artist Ulises Carrión in 1972. In his early linguistic exercises, Carrión played with the notion of learning by sounds and poetry. By creating his own onomatopoeia and sequences of repetition, he expresses his playful attitude towards poetry.
Ulises Carrión (1941-1989) is one of the most important figures of Mexican conceptual art. His 1975 manifesto The New Art of Making Books help defined artist's books as an autonomous artistic genre. His work includes numerous artist's books—which was then designated as bookworks—but also video art, sound arts, performance and mail art.
