Jacques Sivan

 
French poet Jacques Sivan (1955-2016) invented a poetry freed from codes and conventions of language to reflect the plural complexity of the world. With Vannina Maestri and Jean-Michel Espitallier, he created and directed the review Java. His poetry was published in leading journals of contemporary poetry (TXT, Revue de Littérature Générale, Doc(k)s, Action poétique, Res Poetica, etc.). He also collaborated with artists such as filmmaker Marie Poitevin and musician Cédric Pigot.
