Since the early 1960s, Julien Blaine (born 1942 in Rognac, France, lives and works in Marseille) has been developing a semiotic poetry, which can be defined as post-concrete and post-fluxus. Above all, his poetry is a physical experience: a performance.
Through a ready-made exhibition of works made by animals, the poet Julien Blaine offers a vision as comical as it is tragic of the art world, while trying to "establish a communication between the lost world and the contemporary world."
In 2020, Julien Blaine, born in 1942, inventories (and offers) what remains in an artist's studio at the end of a lifetime of creation. Le grand dépotoir brings together essays, letters and reflections on his vast poetic enterprise since its beginnings.
This catalogue dedicated to experimental poet Julien Blaine documents the wide variety of his work through his texts, images, installations and performances. Published on the occasion of a retrospective at the MAC Marseille, the publication is richly illustrated and documented, and features an interview with Blaine by Laurent Cauwet and Fabienne Létang.
Penultimate volume of notebooks recounting the scientific-poetic journey of poet Julien Blaine in search of the original language. Here, he reflects on linguistic works by Jean-Pierre Brisset and Jules Hermann, but most and foremost on Hans W. Bornefeld's research on Cro-Magnon glyphs.
