*Edition of 200 copies, comes with insert* Christian Poitevin, artistically known as Julien Blaine, is a poet, visual artist, performer, and editor who has dedicated himself to sound poetry, visual poetry, and mail art. He began to be interested in the relationship between word and image in the early 1960s when he created his first magazine, Les Carnets de l’Octéor. During this time, he also made his first performances, such as Reps elephant 306 where he interviewed a circus elephant. From 1975 to 1991 he published Doc(k)s, one of the most long- lived and important magazines on visual poetry. He founded V.A.C. (Ventabren Art Contemporain) and was the initiator of various festivals of sound poetry. Since the early 1960s, Julien Blaine has been developing a semiotic poetry, which can be defined as post-concrete and post-fluxus. Above all, his poetry is a bodily experience, a performance.
