"acrobats" by ian hamilton finlay (1964)

"isolated, single letters are pattern but letters joined in words (as these are) are direction. those in the »acrobats« poem are both, behaving like the real circus acrobats who are now individual units, now-springing together-diagonals and towers. properly, the poem should be constructed of cut-out letters, to occupy not a page but an entire wall above a children’s playground." (I.H.F.)

(from the anthology of concrete poetry, edited by emmett williams)

UbuWeb: Visual Poetry UbuWeb began in 1996 as a site for visual & concrete poetry and this new section expands upon and deepens Ubu’s original vision. Beginning with Ian Hamilton Finlay’s seminal magazine “Poor.Old.Tired.Horse” (1962-68) and continuing to the present (Anatol Knotek’s 2010 “Rotated Alphabet”), the collection spans a half-century and encompasses hundreds of artists. This first installment, consisting of nearly 100 items will continue to be updated by curator & editor derek beaulieu.
