POÈME OBJKT/POÈME SBJKT–Exhibition Catalogue

POÈME OBJKT/POÈME SBJKT is the companion anthology to a two-part exhibition — curated jointly by theVERSEverse, L’Avant Galerie Vossen and Librairie Métamorphoses — in which language is both the subject and object of art.

This group survey of writers, visual artists, typographical alchemists and creative technologists traces the trajectory of text as it evolves on and off the page, expanding the conventional bounds of how poetry is experienced via a multiplicity of mediums and technologies.

Like many works in the exhibition, this catalogue exists both as “hardware” (a substantial hardcover edition) and “software” — this digitally rare book, published in a limited print run via the blockchain.
