(a, b, c) / Ulises Carrión
One of artist Ulises Carrión’s early linguistic exercises in English, originally handwritten in green ink in 1972. Carrión observes and explores the structure of the sonnet. He develops fourteen interrelated sequences, which he uses as a key to codify a narrative. The text of each poem follows the schematic order of its title.
A key figure in Mexican conceptual art, Ulises Carrión (b. 1941, San Andrés Tuxtla, Mexico; d. 1989, Amsterdam) was an artist, editor, curator and art theorist. His visual art practice was founded in an interest in print culture and media, which led him to engage with mail art and eventually performance, film, and video. In 1975, Carrión founded Other Books and So, a pioneering distribution center for artists' publications and multiples in Amsterdam.
